Spooky Witch Finger Cookies – Halloween Threat


Hey everyone!! Boooo!!!! Happy Halloween!!!!!!!

For this Halloween I made these Spooky Witch Finger Cookies.  Well this is one of those spooky desserts that I have always seen, but never actually made until for this Halloween.




A little creepy and scary, but really fun to make, these finger cookies are actually very delicious and great spooky decoration and sure a smash hit for Halloween party!!! The ingredients in the cookies are basic ingredients like almonds, flour, sugar and vanilla extract. Almonds act as fingernails for these spooky finger-shaped cookies that kids and grown-ups like and will enjoy!! As the finger cookies expand so make them as thin.


These cookies are fun and easy to make!!
