These sugar cookies that makes for the perfect scary cookies. We have made them as mummies, vampires or as bloody fingers for Halloween. They are easy enough to make that you can let the children help.
You can also just roll the dough into small balls and let them turn into cookies in the oven. Decorate them as mummies and vampires with regular icing.
Instead of rolling the dough into balls you shape finger size sticks out of them. You can fix a “nail” made out of half an almond glued on with either icing or red gel. You can make the joints if you run a knife over them while their are warm from the oven, where you want the joints.
