witches finger cookies

Gross!! Witches finger cookies make a great Halloween treat! They're super easy, fast and ultra-tasty :) Here's the recipe I followed or visit the link here. Enjoy!

*Tip* Make sure you chill the cookies in the fridge for 10 -15 minutes before baking to prevent them from flattening.

Witches Finger Cookie Recipe

Yield: 5 dozen

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Almond extract
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 2/3 cups Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3/4 cup whole Almonds, blanched
  • 2 squares of melting chocolate, or chocolate bark

Combine the sugar, egg, butter, almond extract, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix in the flour, and salt. Cover and refrigerate the dough for about 30 minutes, or until it’s firm.

When you’re ready to shape the cookies, only take out a small portion of the dough at a time. Shape the cookies into fingers by rolling and working with your hands. Score the top of the cookie with a knife or spatula to make it look like the wrinkles in your knuckle. Press an imprint into the tip of the cookie with your finger to make a spot for the almond finger nail. Press an almond into the tip of each finger to look like a fingernail.

Placed on a cooking sheet lightly coated with no-stick cooking spray and bake at 325` for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cookies are a very light golden brown. Let the cookies cool on a drying rack.

Use melting chocolate to go around the outside of the almond nail, giving a ghoulish appearance. Just melt the chocolate, put it in an icing piping bag, and cut a very small hole in the tip. Then pipe around the nail.

I made them with my class the other day it was was really fun....look at all the creepy fingers....yuck!! EEEEEEEheheheheheeeeeheeeheeeee Happy Halloween!
