Probably, the lack of adrenaline affects our life if we so willingly adopted the terrible Halloween holiday of All Saints from Catholics. And once adopted, then it is necessary to prepare for it with dignity. This includes the manufacture of various frightening-looking, but excellent-tasting treats. For example, you can scare your loved ones with the sweet “bones of the dead” - with glazed almond dough cookies. What kind of emotions will be more from this dish - fear or delight - see for yourself. By the way, having mastered the dough for this sweet delicacy, it is not necessary to wait for Halloween again to indulge yourself with this cookie, you can simply make it not in the form of bones, but in a more everyday form.
Ingredients (for 4 persons):
- 250 grams of flour;
- 150 grams of ground almonds;
- 130 grams of butter;
- 130 g sugar;
- 1 egg and 1 yolk;
- 1 lemon;
- 150 g white chocolate.
- Chopped almonds (this can be done in a coffee grinder), combine the flour and sugar in a capacious container, add to them chopped peel of one lemon, softened butter, egg and yolk. Quickly knead the dough, form a ball out of it and let it rest in the refrigerator for half an hour.
- The next step is making bones. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin in a medium thickness layer and cut it into rectangles measuring approximately 8 by 4 cm. Then roll each piece into a tube like sausage and bend the tips so that it looks like a bone. Place the cobbled bones on a baking sheet lined with cooking paper and, when the baking tray is full, send it to the oven, preheated to 180 degrees, for 15 minutes.
- Melt white chocolate in a water bath. When the biscuit is baked, let the steamed go and immerse each bone in white chocolate, then lay it on paper to freeze the frosting. Happy All Saints Day!
