Halloween - Witches' fingers

Another "vintage" idea, last year's find. Witches' fingers. Served as apetizer together with an avocado dip (pretty green, mate!). A friend of mine when she arrived for dinner - by the way, dressed as a witch, black hat and all - was rather surprised and could not stop laughing. She was not expecting a theme menu and she had never seen these cute fingers :). Neither had I, to say the truth, until I did some research on the net to decide the menu.

I used a pate brisee recipe

200 g. of flour,
130 g. of butter,
6 tblpns of water,
a pinch of salt,
peeled almonds.

Mix the ingredients, let the dough rest for 25 minutes. On a lightly floured wooden board roll the pastry into a few long ropes, cut them to measure, shape the like fingers and using a knife make wrinkles on the knuckes.
Use almonds as nails.
Bake for 10-15 minutes in a 180°C oven.
