You'd never guess these bite-sized skulls are actually quite wholesome for a Halloween party. They're cut from a baked custard of spinach, basil, and ricotta cheese, then arranged on crackers. A black cardstock "coffin" makes a fitting bed for the skeletal snacks.
Be sure spinach is completely dry. Frozen spinach can be substituted for fresh: cook, drain, and press excess moisture from a colander.

Good flavor, but impossible to work with. I used fresh spinach. When it came out of the spring form pan it was too wet to roll out ... I had to press it out with my fingers. Not worth the time and trouble!
I absolutely agree with Joshuabsu. These are delicious but I had the same issue with cutting out the skulls and I had exactly the same cutter too. It was a little too fibrous to cut out the detail of the eyes and nose. I made half moons with a circle cutter quite easily in comparison.
These have a great taste, but the skull is very hard to cut out and have them not tear. I recommend using cutters with less detail. I purchased the exact set that was used for these and the cat, ghost, and bat cutters worked much easier.
