  • cups all purpose flour
  • 62 g cocoa powder dutch processed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 170 g butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 24 almonds blanched


  • Make the cookies:
  • Whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together on high speed until completely smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and green colouring and beat on high speed until combined, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl and beat again as needed to combine.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined. Dough will be soft. If the dough seems too soft and sticky for shaping, add 1 more Tablespoon of flour.
  • divide dough in to 24 balls and roll into finger shapes. Press an almond "nail" into the tip of each and lay them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Bake in a preheated oven 350°F (177°C) for 15min. Allow to cool on the tray for 5 minute. then transfer to cooling rack and allow to cool completely.

  • We had some icing left over from making the cockroach cupcakes, so we added red food dye and decorated our zombie fingers with these.
