Spooky finger bread

I know I know another recipe??? Sorry but I am in charge of bread sticks for our family halloween party this weekend. I was hoping to try something new and I found this awesome hand to go with my Mama's awesome chilli! How cute is this???? Love it! Go HERE for more awesome halloween bread recipes!


Skills: Beginning

Prep Time: 8 min (not including thaw time)

Bake Time: 20-25 min


5 Rhodes Texas™ Rolls, thawed but still cold

1 egg, beaten

aluminum foil


Shape 3 rolls into a wide oval. With scissors, cut a deep 3-inch slice down one side of the oval for the thumb. Cut 3 more slices to form fingers. These will not be as deep as the thumb slice. Pull the thumb down and away from the rest of the fingers. Place hand on sprayed baking sheet. Spread fingers apart and push an indention into the bottom of the palm.

Press knuckles into the fingers by using the end of a spoon to cut small half circles.

Press your fingertip deeply into the ends of the dough to make depressions for fingernails. Roll another roll into a long rope and cut off 2 small pieces for warts and 5 pieces cut on the diagonal for nails. Shape nails into long, flat tear drops and press them into the depressions. Shape the small pieces into round balls and press into the hand for warts, where desired.

Shape the remaining roll into a long flat rectangle for the wrist. Place it slightly under the hand.

Slash hand and wrist with a knife to add spooky cuts and stitches. Crinkle up aluminum foil to form a log shape. Drape fingers over the top of a small, oven-safe bowl sprayed with non-stick spray. Use the foil where needed for support. Brush hand with egg. Let rise 15 to 30 minutes. Just before baking, pinch the sides of the knuckles. Bake at 350°F 20-25 minutes. Check nails and warts during baking and reshape if necessary. Let hand cool completely before removing from dish and foil.
