Mummies & Wicked Witch Fingers

There’s a house upon the hilltop,
We will not go inside.
For that is where the witches live,
Where ghosts and goblins hide.

poem by Jack Pelousky

Ghoulish treats have been appearing in my kitchen.

. . . Eyes have been upon me.

While my sweet half has been digging spuds, basement lights have been flickering. Eeeeeery noises and footprints on wet lawn have frightened me! Doors have opened slightly enough to see the silhouettes of ghosts peering from within the walls.

I’m striking back . . . by baking them!

For the mummies:

Rhodes Dinner Rolls thawed but cold, pizza sauce, string cheese & olives.

My favorite Homemade Pizza Sauce.

recipe below.

 Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray.  Flatten each roll into a 3 to 4 inch circle. Place on a sprayed baking sheet, parchment paper or silpat lined baking sheet.
Top each one with pizza sauce. Use as much or as little as you like.
Prick each little pizza with a fork several times to prevent big bubbles from forming.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
While the pizzas are baking, tear 1 string cheese for each pizza into thin strips. Cut one olive in half for the eyes.
Remove from the oven, and give your mummy some EYES!
Layer cheese strips in random fashion to resemble mummy bandages.  Trim any strips that are too long.  Return to the oven and bake an additional 1 to 2 minutes to melt the cheese slightly.
Next step:  EAT!
For the Witches fingers:  Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed but still cold, melted butter, Parmesan Cheese, garlic salt
Roll each roll into a 7 to 9 inch rope. Place on a sprayed baking sheet or line with parchment or a silpat.
Place a raw or blanched almond at the end of one side of the rope.
Add knuckles and lines along the finger with a sharp knife.
Pinch or press indentations to add form to your finger.
Brush each finger with melted butter, and sprinkle garlic salt & Parmesan cheese over the top if desired.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until golden.
Creepy Good!
