Ogres’ fingers

Ogres' fingers

It’s nearly Halloween and preparations are required. Special food needs to be served, such as worm burgers, or, like this one, ogres’ fingers.   It’s kind of a sugar cookie recipe, but it doesn’t require baking soda, it’s just eggs, butter, sugar and flour (AND a pinch of salt, AND some aroma, or vanilla, or lemon zest).


  • 250g butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 225g sugar
  • 500g flour
  • pinch of salt
  • orange aroma
  • food coloring
  • almonds
  • chocolate
  • royal icing


  1. beat the butter, add in the sugar, and when it has changed color add in the eggs and the pinch of salt;
  2. add the food coloring and the aroma and add the flour;
  3. wrap in cleanfilm and leave to rest in the fridge for 2 hours;
  4. form the fingers and press in the almonds so that they don’t fall off;
  5. cook in a preheated oven at 200 °C for about 10-15 minutes;
  6. melt the chocolate and use it to secure the “nails” and add some “dirt”, and the royal icing to add some fake blood.
