Preparation steps

1.

Mix flour, almonds and whole cane sugar. Slice the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the pulp.

2.

Add vanilla pulp, almond extract, salt, egg, and butter in pieces to the flour mixture. Knead everything quickly to a smooth short pastry. Wrap in cling wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.

3.

Roll out the dough on a floured work surface and cut out ghosts. Place a pecan nut half in the middle of each, place ghost arms around the nut and press carefully. Press two eyes into each cookie with a wooden skewer.

4.

Place the cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 10-15 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
