You crazy Czechs!

Imagine peeling back the fingernail.

Unwanted company?  No problem.  Use your basic Linzer Cookie Dough and bake up some bloody finger pastry.

This was passed down to my mom through the Czech email chain.  It’s for the “blushing bride”.

See how practical the East Europeans are?  Scare away your guests but do it using a good homemade pastry.  And good jam–mainly fruit.  You don’t want to look like a bad hostess for God’s sake. And you’re not going to let these perfectly good cookies go to waste.  They’ll be great for dipping in coffee. Not like those rock-hard biscotti things the Italians make.

And while we’re on the subject of Czech humour (were we?)…..please forgive this.  (and don’t think there’s not a “Will you take a Czech?” panel too.)

Why isn't it in Czech?

  1. Ah the Czech cartoons! Reminds me of Worker & Parasite on the Simpsons.

    I’v eaten those they are tasty. My aunt made them one halloween…seems more fitting then for a blushing bride…but what do I know? 🙂 I’m sure Italian “Lady Fingers” once looked like those until some marketing savvy american decided
    otherwise. 😉
