Halloween is a trick n treat traditional event that is celebrated on every year 31st October. At that night people enjoy cultural activities like bonfires, horror costume parties, carving jack o lanterns, visiting and making artificial haunted house for fun and making yummy meals absolutely in contrast to Halloween. Those meals includes cakes, cookies, sushi, pumpkin pies, and a lot of other things whose presentations are truly like the face of Halloween like scary yet yummy.
Here I am posting an amazing recipe of scary witch finger cookies, which will look absolutely amazing at your Halloween party plus they taste as good as they are. (Don’t go for the appearance its Halloween people ;))
- Softened butter : 1 cup
- Confectioners’ sugar: 1 cup
- Egg: 1
- Vanilla extract: 1 tsp.
- Almond Extract: 1 tsp.
- All-purpose flour: 2 2/3 cups
- Baking powder: 1 tsp.
- Salt: 1 tsp.
- Whole almonds: 2/3 cups
- Red Cherry or strawberry jam: 2 tbsp.
1. Pre-heat the oven and make the baking sheet greasy with spray oil or melted butter.
2. Take a large bowl and add softened butter and sugar, beat with electric beater until combined. Now add egg and beat again. Pour vanilla and almond extract in the mixture and beat well until it forms a smooth creamy mixture. Now slowly add flour, salt and baking powder and beat again. Now place this mixture in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
3. Take a wax paper and remove the dough from fridge in small amount. Now make round shape cookie than roll it in the wax paper to give it a shape like a finger. Use all the dough to make finger like shapes with the help of wax paper. Now put some pressure with the knife in the middle of the ‘finger dough’ to give the impression of knuckles for complete finger looking cookie. Do this with all the cookies.
4. Now press one edge of the cookie with your thumb and put some cherry or strawberry jam over that pressed edge and place half almond over it, to make it look like long nail over red blood. Prepare all the ‘fingers’ like this.
5. Now bake the cookies 20-30 minutes until they are golden brown in colour.
6. You can pour some jam over the other edge to give it a look of blood.
7. Yummy yet scary witchy cookies are ready for an amazing Halloween party.
