Ghastly Goblin’s Toes

  • Rating ****

Makes 3 dozen toes

Try not to think about the toeless goblins hobbling around the globe when you enjoy these pretzel-like baked treats. At least they can’t run very fast!


  • 1 package instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 cups flour, divided, plus extra for kneading
  • Nonstick spray
  • 1 Henry’s Large Egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pound almonds
  • 1/4 cup rosemary, dried
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • Assortment of Henry’s Organic Mustards


Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Dissolve yeast in water according to the directions on package. Mix sugar into yeast mixture. Pour mixture into 3 cups of flour. Stir until combined, then work in last cup of flour. Knead dough for about 5 minutes. Divide dough into thirds. Each third should make 12 pretzel nugget toes. Shape dough into toes and place on baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.

Mix egg with water and brush over toes. Press almond at tip of toe for the toenail. Place individual rosemary needles on each toe to make the toes look hairy. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Bake for 15 minutes. Serve with mustard.
