Food Friday Featuring: Spooky Cheese Wafer Fingers
Yes those are indeed fingers! Cheese fingers that is ;). Catherine from Weelicious shared a recipe for these healthy treats last week and we couldn’t wait to share it with our readers!
Whether you’re having a get together this Halloween or just want to make something a bit gnarly looking — but delicious, I assure you — these fingers will be a hit!
Cheese Wafer Fingers (Makes about 20 2-inch Fingers)
1/2 Lb or 2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, cut into cubes
1 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Raw Almonds, slivered or whole blanched
1. Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
2. Place the first 3 ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine (dough may be a bit crumbly, but it will stick together).
3. Take a piece of dough and mold into a “finger” shape. Then place 1 slice of almond on the top of the “finger tip” for the “nail”. *
4. Place fingers on a parchment paper or Silpat-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let fingers cool on sheet for 2 minutes before removing.
*Press almonds down well into fingers to make sure they stay.
