Creepy Fingers

Creepy Fingers
Yield: 48 fingers

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Italian-herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 11 ounce package refrigerated breadstick dough
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • Almond slices

Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Crumple two large pieces of foil, and shape them into logs. Place logs on a baking sheet. Place another piece of foil over logs. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, Italian-herb seasoning, and paprika.

2. Unroll refrigerated breadstick dough, and cut each rectangle (total of 12) in half crosswise, then slice each half lengthwise into 2 equal strips. Cut a small triangle from each side of one end of each breadstick strip to taper into a fingertip. Cut two 1/8-inch-deep slices crosswise on each finger to make a knuckle.

3. Roll in melted butter, and place on a baking sheet so fingers drape over foil. Sprinkle fingers with cheese mixture. Brush tapered ends with beaten egg, and place an almond slice on each to make a fingernail. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool completely.
