MY RECIPE CORNER - HOW TO MAKE DELICIOUSLY TERRIFYING WITCH FINGER COOKIES

Hello all,

One thing I love to do this time of year is bake. There are so many recipes to try. In honor of Halloween I made this one. It goes hand in hand with this awesome Halloween book I can't wait to read to my grand daughter. It's called Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson. The recipe is for severed witch finger cookies. Aside from the fact they're delicious, they are easy to make and the end product is so life like and amazing. Take a look -


When I made them I used a roll of store bought sugar cookie dough, but if you want to make your own dough, here's what you need for that -


INGREDIENTS FOR COOKIE DOUGH:

1 cup of softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 2/3 cups of flour


THE REST OF THE INGREDIENTS:

sliced almonds
coca powder
tube of red decorating gel


DIRECTIONS:

Roll out small amounts of cookie dough on a floured surface. Roll it into thin strips. Remember, they will spread out when they cook. Press a sliced almond into one end of the cookie. This will look like a fingernail. Scour the cookie in the middle with a knife for the knuckle. Dust with a little bit of cocoa powder around the knuckle and nail. It gives the fingers the appearance of being dirty. Bake as directed on the package or at 325 degrees for about 10 minutes until done. Let cool. Then add a little of the red decorating gel on the ends to give the appearance of blood. Enjoy!
