This is another traditional Halloween recipe which looks kind of creepy, if properly done. Simply, it consist of finger shaped cookies crowned with an almond, imitating a finger nail. It didn't come out too well when I did it, the "fingers" expanded too much and hit one another. They key, therefore, is to only use a very small amount of dough for each finger.
I used store-bought sugar cookie dough for convenience sake, you can use whatever type of cookie dough you like
Witches Fingers Cookies
cookie dough almonds
Pre-heat oven to 350F. Grease two large baking sheets.
Take a small amount of cookie dough in your hand and roll it into a finger shape. With a paring knife draw lines in the middle (where the knuckle would be), insert an almond into the top. Place fingers on the baking sheet at least 1 ½" from each other. Bake until done.
