Halloween is quite close. Some people like it but others hate it. Pumpkins, scary masks, spiders and witches look at us from every shop front. In the restaurant we can eat dishes prepared with pumpkin. My children have a Halloween party at their school. In our home we usually spend this day together cutting out pumpkin lanterns and decorating our doors with paper ghosts and bats. I prepare pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin pancakes. So, if we were to treat this day as an excuse to spend a pleasant day together and prepare a tasty dinner, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.
Today I would like to share with you terrifying Halloween cookies in the shape of a mummy. If you don't like Halloween, you can decorate the cookies in a different way and simply enjoy their almond taste and nice crunchiness.
The idea for the cookie decoration comes from www.kuchniaagaty.pl.
Ingredients (45 cookies)
100g of ground almonds
200g of flour
100g of caster sugar
175g of butter
a pinch of salt
200g of white chocolate
Heat the oven up to 180C. Cover a baking sheet with baking paper.
Mix together the dry ingredients of the cookies: the flour, ground almonds, caster sugar, and salt. Add the butter and knead into a smooth dough. Leave in the fridge for half an hour. Roll the dough out. Cut the cookies into mummy shapes. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie. Decorate the cookies with it. Leave to congeal.
Enjoy your meal!
