Do you want to learn Halloween recipes?

We are probably out of the “Trick or Treat” age. At least we rarely prepare ourselves full of expectations to get sweets that have long since expired from our neighbors. One of the other Halloween party must still be! Are you organizing a party this year, or are you invited to friends? No problem: We provide you with the right Halloween recipe ideas to concentrate entirely on your costume.

Shortcrust pastry finger

You need (for 40 biscuits):

  • 120 grams of soft butter
  • 120 grams of sugar
  • One egg
  • 250 grams of flour
  • 40 pieces of almonds, preferably without skin
  • Green food coloring

Halloween Recipes

That’s how it’s done:

  • Mix soft butter and sugar and beat until fluffy. Then stir in the egg and add the flour.
  • Tip: For the shortcrust fingers, a stirred shortcrust pastry is ideal. This is less pronounced when baked than a shortcrust bread with cold butter.
  • Let the dough rest covered for 30 minutes in the fridge. In the meantime, you can take care of the (bloody) fingernails: put a few drops of food coloring in a freezer bag and push the almonds back and forth. Remove the connector and set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees top and bottom heat. Take the dough piece by piece out of the fridge and place it on a baking sheet with baking paper.
  • Smaller pieces of dough are rolled up for the fingers and formed into fingers with ankles. You can cut your finger joint with a sharp knife. Then put on one almond each as a nail.
  • Almost there: Bake your fingers for about 15-20 minutes and decorate with food coloring.

  • While the meatballs cool, roll up the pizza dough and cut strips about 0.5 cm wide and 40 cm long with a knife.
  • Halve the raw spaghetti and skewer three meatballs each. Then the meatballs with the dough balls are rolled up in order to remove the spaghetti.
