OK, if you don't get it 1) you'll probably skip the recipe and 2) you're not a Doctor Who fan! Epic scene with the Doctor and young Amy Pond, right after he regenerates into the new Doctor (David Tennant into Matt Smith, if you're keeping track!)
Nothing fishy about these, and you have time to practice before the new season starts!
FOR THE COOKIES
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup, plus 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
FOR THE “BREADING”
5 whole graham cracker sheets
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
To make the cookies: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat mat.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat until thoroughly combined and fluffy. Stir in the egg and extract(s) until combined. Sprinkle half of the flour mixture into the bowl and mix until just combined. Add the remaining flour, mixing until until thoroughly combined.
Cover and chill for 20 to 30 minutes.
To make the “breading”: In a medium bowl, or the bowl of a food processor, crush the graham crackers until they look like dry sand. Stir in the sugar. Add the melted butter and combine the mixture until it resembles wet sand; set aside.
Shape the cookies: Preheat oven to 325 degrees (165 C).
Remove the chilled dough from the refrigerator and shape one tablespoon portions of dough into 3- to 4-inch “fish fingers.” Roll each fish finger in the graham cracker breading, completely coating them, and place on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 20 to 23 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving.
