WItch finger cookies



Unsalted butter-1cup

Flour-2 3/4 cup

Salt-1/4 pinch

Baking Powder-1tsp

Vanilla extract-1tsp

Food colouring of your choice-i've used green and some made plain

Whole blanced almonds-(soak in water for 30 minutes and peel and split into two halves)-30 nos

Sugar-powdered-1 cup


Sift the baking powder,salt  and flour so they are evenly distributed.

Peel and split the almonds and keep it ready.


1.Take the butter in a wide bowl add the powdered sugar and beat till creamed well.
2.Add in the egg and beat well,inbetween add the essence and mix well.
3.Add the flour little by little and mix well
4.It will be a sticky dough keep mixing till all the ingredients are incorporated well.
5.I divided the dough into two parts and added 2 drops of green liquid food colour to one part.
6.take the dough on a parchment paper just roll and cover it and keep refrigerated for 30 mins,this helps in moulding the dough as it will be sticky.
7.After 30mins minimum take the dough pinch 1tsp or a small marble sized piece and shape into fingers by first rolling inbetween your hands like a rope..roll it really thin as it'l expand when you bake(my fingers are fat).
8.Then make knuckle impressions with a fork.Press a almond piece for the nails and carefully transfer to a greased baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 mins at 160 degrees..the above measure yielded 45 cookies..
