They're crunchy and tasty with a sweet vanilla flavor :-) The nails were fastened with blackberry jam, so there's a fruity bit too.

I was a little...and then I realized...

It's a witches finger, right? :)

Happy Halloween!

I asked my wife and she said the cookies were called 'Klamme fingre' in Danish. That roughly translates into 'disgusting fingers'. But witches fingers is a cool name.

And I LOVE Simon's cat, so thanks :-)

OMG that is disgusting! LOL Perfect for Hallowe'en!

Point of curiosity: In the US, due to one or two evil people in the past putting nasty or even lethal things/stuff in home-cooked Hallowe'en treats, nobody allows their kids to eat anything that's not a manufactured, sealed, wrapped item - candy bars, cookies, gum, whatever. People will bake goodies for in-home parties and giving to friends and relatives, but no one will accept such items from strangers any more. Is that the case in Europe (where I do know hardly anyone even notices, much less celebrates, Hallowe'en like we crazy Yanks do)?

The almond nail really does the trick. We served them at a party in my son's class tonight, and the kids (6-7 year old) were pleasantly grossed out about it.

As to what we can give to kids at the door, I don't think the fear of having your kids poisoned is really present in our minds. Denmark, for better or worse, is a society built on trust (I think we're the most trusting people in the world according to some studies.) So getting cookies from the neighbors isn't a problem, and I don't hope it ever will be.

Halloween wasn't big here ten years ago, but it's grown into quite a spectacle for the kids. I think in part it's happened for commercial reasons (pumpkin pushin' green grocers, costume pushin' toy stores, etc.) But monsters like vampires and zombies are much more common in tv-shows for kids now, so they love to dress up that way. There are no other occasions for a party in the fall either, so I think it was bound to become big here. I know the Swedes love it too, but I don't know about the rest of Europe.

She's a good baker, and she really likes these kinds of challenges :-) Also, they're quite tasty.

That's the reaction we had from some of the kids from my son's class :-)
