Witch Fingers

Witch Fingers

Happy Halloween! If you are holding a small halloween party for family and friends or for your kids, this last-minute halloween recipe is  just bewitching! 🙂

Witch Fingers are made from butter cookies. You’ve got 2  options by the way, whether to use butter or margarine. I’ve tried both in baking, but in different recipes. For some reasons, I found my cookies more tasty when I use margarine. The color on the other hand is also much darker and livelier, and not to mention that it’s cheaper too. witch fingers

For the fake blood,  I used Clara Ole’s strawberry jam (non-sweet; the cookies are already sweet that it can be overwhelming when paired with a sweeter jam) and plain almonds for the nails.

Please don’t overbake your Witch Fingers. Don’t cook them longer than the 25-minute baking time or else it would turn hard as a rock!

Finally, use a knife or a pair of scissors to create the knuckles and the lines and wrinkling on the fingers!

So without further adieu, here’s my Witch Finger Butter Cookies Recipe! 🙂
