Halloween is an Anglo-Saxon holiday that is a huge hit in Italy. Involving the kids in making these "scary" cookies is a great way to spend quality time together.
1Preheat the oven to 180°. Melt the butter in a double boiler. Carefully mix together the two flours along with a teaspoon of baking powder.
Create a fountain on a flat surface with the flour mixture and place the butter, sugar, egg yolks and vanilla flavoring in the center with a pinch of salt.
2Mix everything well, adding the lemon zest and pine nuts.
Roll out the dough so that it's 6mm thick and, using cookie cutters, make as many cookies as possible. Roll out the leftover dough and repeat until used up.
3Place the cookies on a baking sheet covered with baking parchment and bake for 15 minutes at 180°. Take out of the oven and let cool. In the meantime, melt the chopped up chocolate in a double boiler, dip parts of the cookies and let dry on a cooling rack.
With melted Emilia white and dark chocolate and a long toothpick (or a pastry bag with a small nozzle), you can create Halloween decorations.
