When we eat chicken fingers we don’t get grossed out, because we know chickens don’t have fingers. Also, chicken fingers don’t look like features seen on any living creature. Even dipping them in blood-red ketchup is no biggie. On the other hand (no pun intended), you’ve got to use mind-over-matter tricks to justify munching on these Shortbread Finger Cookies.
Someone with a pretty sick or creative mind figured out that shortbread dough is the same color as light skin and invented these creepy confections. They even went further to ensure anatomical correctness by adding some slits to resemble knuckles and using almonds to look like sharp, pointy fingernails.
A gleefully ghoulish twist on “finger foods,” these buttery shortbread cookies are perfect for Halloween parties or trick-or-treat bags. Made from the finest all-natural ingredients, each is decorated by hand, complete with knuckle creases and an almond fingernail.
- Hand-rolled shortbread cookies in vanilla with a hint of almond.
- Each 3” long finger is hand-decorated with sugar glaze and a whole almond.
- 10 individually wrapped cookies; 8 oz. total.
- Made in USA.
- A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
If you’re planning a party and want to achieve a high level of disgust, then definitely add these finger cookies to the spread. Planning now will even give you enough time to practice making your own shortbread fingers and save you some cash. You can try to craft pinkies and thumbs while you’re at it.
