Halloween night is coming , if you think that day deserves to be scared and prepare something terrifying to surprise your friends.
I recommend that you go into the kitchen and prepare these realistic witch fingers .
We have made it even more realistic with a little bit of red sugar paste and raspberry jam, the photo is a little cool, more than Halloween can not be.
This dessert is still a cookie with the shape of a witch’s finger, a classic of these dates and that to everyone seems terrifying. Also, the fingers that you can see in the photo are almost the same as those of my right hand, so the process was more fun.
With the recipe that I present below, it gives for about 20 fingers or cookies , if you want to make less, you can turn the remaining dough into delicious pasta for breakfast , although I think you are going to like making witch fingers so much that you will not nothing will be left over.

Furthermore, you can prepare this dessert with the little ones at home, they are very easy to make and you can involve the whole family in their preparation.
You will love shaping your fingers, the dough is almost like plasticine and it is still a game, you will all enjoy it together, as a family. Happy Halloween night!
Cookie dough or witch fingers
- In a bowl mix the flour and salt. We heat the butter a little bit in the micro, with 1/2 minute at low temperature it arrives and we add it to the bowl with the flour.
- Add the sugar, the eggs and the vanilla essence. We put our hands and put the dough together. We only have to knead 2 or 3 minutes, the ingredients come together quickly.
- We put the dough in the fridge wrapped in plastic wrap or as in this case in an airtight bag. It must be cold for at least half an hour.
- We preheat the oven to 180º C.
Witch’s Finger Shape
- With a rolling pin, flatten the dough until it is about 2 cm. thick and cut into strips. As if it were Preschool, we mold each strip into the shape of a finger.
- With the thick edge of a knife we scratch the fingers to give it more realism.
- If we want a longer or shorter finger, we will modify the amount of dough we take for each cookie.
- We can even twist the fingers to give it a more witch-like finger look. By pinching the dough, the fingers of the dead crumb are quite successful.
- We place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
- Once placed on the tray we place the whole almond as a nail.
Baking and final presentation of witch fingers
- Mix the egg yolk with a few drops of milk and paint the cookies with a brush or brush, thus preventing them from burning.
- Bake the cookies at 175º C in the middle tray with temperature above, below and air, for 12 or 15 minutes, until we see them lightly golden.
- When taking them out of the oven, we let them rest on the tray for five minutes and then transfer to a rack.
- Once they have completely cooled, place them in a bowl with the jam in a small bowl.
- If we want we give it a more realistic touch with sugar paste or strawberry syrup, truly terrifying.

Tips for some fluffy witch fingers
- When shaping the cookie dough, look at your fingers to get the most accurate shape possible to that of real fingers.
- Include defective almonds (broken somewhere or with a fissure) will look great (the witch has been dead for several months) and will be even more horrifying.
- A great snack or dinner, where the little ones at home will have a great time, not only in the preparation but when they see the final result.
- If they are left over (which I doubt), they are perfectly preserved in an airtight tin for several days like any cookie. We already have our terrifying cookies ready!
