Witch Fingers ~ Halloween Recipe

Witch Fingers Recipe

That’s disgusting!  Who would eat those gross things?  I have to say, they look pretty impressively disturbing but kids will eat anything and most importantly they’ll have more fun eating it when it’s repulsive looking like these delectable witch finger cookies!

What you’ll need: (Makes 5 dozen)
1 cup Butter, softened
1 cup Icing sugar (powdered sugar)
1 Egg
1 tsp Almond extract
2 tsp Vanilla
2 2/3 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking powder*
1 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Almonds, whole blanched


  1. In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, almond extract, egg, and vanilla.
  2. Mix in the flour, salt, and baking soda and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  3. Roll the teaspoonful of dough into thin finger shapes.
  4. Press the almond firmly into the end to represent the finger nail and squeeze in the center to create the knuckle shapes.
  5. Place the fingers on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake in the oven at 160C (325F) for 20 – 25 minutes until the fingers are golden.
  6. Let cool for 3 minutes.
