Spooky Witches Fingers and A Prize

This Spooky Witches Fingers is for the Home Bakers Challenge started by Mrs.Priya Suresh and this month hosted by Mrs. Nalini . Thanks a lot Nalini for this wonderful challenge and my kids loved these spooky cookies.

Here's how to make it with step by step photos...


1 cup softened
Powdered sugar
1 cup
Almond Extract
1 tsp
Vanilla Extract
1 tsp
All purpose flour
2 ¾ cup
Baking powder
1 tsp
1 tsp
Whole almonds
¾ cup
Decorating red gel/Jam
As needed
Recipe Source: All receipes


Add butter and sugar in a bowl and beat it with an electric mixer. Now add the egg, almond extract, vanilla extract to the bowl and beat it well.

Slowly add the flour, baking powder, salt and beat it together with the mixer.

Wrap it and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.

Meanwhile blanch the almonds and keep it ready.

Preheat the oven to 165 ˚C . Line the baking sheets with parchment paper.

Now remove the dough from the refrigerator. Scoop out a small amount of dough.
Roll the dough into the shape of a finger. Make an indentation with a tooth pick as shown in the photo.

Finally add the almonds on the tip of the finger and press it in slightly. Transfer it to the baking sheet.

Similarly do fingers with rest of the dough.

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven until the cookies are slightly golden brown in colour for 20 to 25 minutes.

Let it cool for about 3-5 minutes, slowly remove the almond from the end of each cookie. Squeeze a small amount of red gel/jam into the cavity. Place the almonds back.

Spooky witches’ fingers are ready to be enjoyed.
