Halloween is not in my tradition. In Italy we don't celebrate Halloween but I looked up to understand better the origin of it, and it was very interesting.
So I prepared this cookies to celebrate Halloween in my Italian kitchen!
Here are the ingredients and the steps. You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page (my profile - highlights) or in my YouTube channel.

100 gr / 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp Butter
