Now these are true finger foods! I got this idea from a Halloween magazine I bought that I just can not find anywhere online! They recommend using breadstick dough but I had some leftover whole wheat dough I wanted to try using instead:
I used this recipe for whole wheat bread machine pizza dough. Do not forget to add extra water, this recipe really needs it. I made our BC favorite Phat Philly Pizzas and had leftover dough to work with.
I cut up some sundried tomatoes and green olives for the fingernails. Then I rolled out some of the dough and shaped it into a finger, topping with a nail.
On the left you seen them before I put them in the oven. I brushed on some olive oil and sprinkled some dried dill. I baked them in a 375F oven for 10 minutes. On the right you can see them after they came right out of the oven, boy did they ever get big!
Some of the nails stayed on but a lot of them fell off. You could always glue them on with some cream cheese. Making these with whole wheat flour gives them an aged looked that worked great, exactly what I was hoping for.
These really are spooky and weird treats that are great with a dipper. I had them with my roasted red pepper soup, post to come very soon!
Are you getting into a spooky foodie mood yet?
I *love* creepy food! I always make these cookies:
but I’m going to have to try your savoury version!

Yes, dipping them into something blood red is a great idea!
They are so fun! Hairy (dill) knuckles and all. Definitely inspiring some spooky foodiness here.
Oh my goodness. I love these! What a great job you did. (totally stealing this idea)

Poledra, I have heard fantastic things about that recipe and will have to try them out, they look amazing!
Deba, a marinara sauce would be perfect as a dipper, it’s true, nice bloody red.
Ava, isn’t the hairy dilly knuckles genius? I love that!
BWB, thank you! I hope you try them, so easy.
Karen, I couldn’t resist the pun. 🙂
