Witches Fingers

October 6, 2011

For me, there are two manditory food items when it comes to Halloween.  The first, is something with pumpkin, and the second is witches fingers.  These cookies are a Halloween party staple.  The recipe makes a lot, and is a bit labour intensive, but the result is perfect for Halloween - fun, tasty, and just a bit spooky.

Witches Fingers

1 Cup Butter, softened
1 Cup Icing Sugar
1 Egg
1 tsp. Almond Flavour
2¾ Cups Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
3/4 Cup Whole Almonds (can be blanched or not)
1 Tube Red Gel icing

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together except the almonds and red gel.Chill the dough for 30 minutes.
  2. Working with ¼ dough at a time, roll heaping teaspoons into finger shapes.
  3. Use a knife to cut knuckles and press in almonds for nails.
  4. Place on a greased baking sheet and cook at 325º for 20-25 minutes.
  5. Cool 3 minutes, then lift the almond, squeeze in gel and press almond back.
