Halloween “Witch Finger” Cookies

Happy Friday Friends!!!

I can’t believe that Halloween is just a few weeks away!  September was just so busy that it flew right by me!  But before Halloween comes, I want to share with you all a kid friendly recipe that I used to make with my dad at Halloween, Witch Finger Cookies!

Witch Finger Cookies are perfect for any upcoming Halloween parties, because they’re super easy, and you can adjust the level of spookiness to suit the event! Since  we were making these cookies last year for The Twincesses preschool Halloween party, we made the Witch Fingers as non-scary as possible, but since we made extra, we also made some creepier!  Either way, the cookies look cool and taste great, a win-win!

The Twincesses had so much fun baking with Mama, and surprisingly they didn’t destroy my kitchen in the process! This is a great recipe to make with the kiddo’s because of how quick and easy these cookies are to make!

Let me know if you give this recipe a try, and if you have any cool Halloween recipes please share in the comments!

Have a fabulous weekend Lovelies, and Happy Halloween!!!

  1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix together the softened butter and sugar, with an electric mixer.
  3. Add and the egg, water, and vanilla to the sugar/butter, then slowly add in the flour, and mix well.
  4. Add Wilton green coloring gel or food coloring to the dough, little by little, until the desired shade of green is achieved.
  5. Take about 1 tsp or so of cookie dough, and roll it between your hands, making it into a long strip of dough, then place on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.
  6. Using a knife or toothpick, make a few lines on the "finger" for knuckles. (I did 2 sets of 3 lines)
  7. Place an almond slice at the tip of the "finger" for the nail.
  8. *OPTIONAL* Press down onto the dough with your finger where the nail would go, and put some jam on the tip of the "finger" before placing the almond down for the nail. You can also put jam on the bottom of the "finger" to make it a scarier, Bloody Witch Finger Cookie.
  9. Bake cookies at 325F for 10 minutes.
  10. Enjoy!
