Sink your teeth into these buttery vanilla cookies, which are every  bit as sweet as they are scary. For silky-smooth melted chocolate,  start with a completely dry bowl and keep it from getting too hot—  water and excessive heat will cause the chocolate to become rough and gritty.

  • Portion size 24 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: October 2014


  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 170 g white chocolate coating wafers (6 oz)
  • red paste food colouring


In large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolk  and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk flour with baking powder; stir  into butter mixture until combined. Shape dough into disc; wrap in  plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for  up to 24 hours.)

Let dough stand at room temperature until soft enough to roll out,  about 15 minutes. On lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to  scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Using knife, cut out about twenty- four 3- x 1-inch (8 x 2.5 cm) triangles. Using fingers, gently bend  edges to form fang-like shapes. Arrange, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless  baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.

Bake in 350 F (180 C) oven until edges and bottoms are pale golden,  about 10 minutes. Let cool on sheet for 1 minute. Remove directly to  rack; let cool completely.

Bring saucepan of water to simmer; remove from heat. Add chocolate  to heatproof bowl; place over top of saucepan, leaving space between  bottom of bowl and surface of water. Stir until chocolate is melted.  Dip 1 flat side of each cookie in chocolate; brush with pastry brush  to remove excess and create tooth-like texture. Arrange, chocolate  side up, on parchment paper–lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until  set, about 15 minutes. Brush pointed tips of cookies with food  colouring to resemble blood. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight  container for up to 3 days.)
