Cheese Wafer Fingers

Not sure what to serve at your Halloween party this year? How about giving everyone the finger? That joke may be in poor taste, but these cheese wafers aren't.

I don't know how else to describe them, but whether you're having a get together this Halloween or just want to make something a bit gnarly looking -- but delicious, I assure you -- these fingers will be a hit!

Cheese Wafer Fingers (Makes about 20 2-inch Fingers)

Prep Time: 110 mins Cook Time: 20 mins

nut free


  • 1/2 Lb or 2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Cup Raw Almonds, slivered or whole blanched


1. Place the first 3 ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine (dough may be a bit crumbly, but it will stick together).
2. Take a piece of dough and mold into a “finger” shape. Then place 1 slice of almond on the top of the “finger tip” for the “nail”. *
3. Refrigerate fingers for 1 hour or overnight.
4. Preheat oven to 375 F.
5. Place fingers on a parchment paper or Silpat-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let fingers cool on sheet for 2 minutes before removing.
6. Serve.
*Press almonds down well into fingers to make sure they stay.
