Ingredients

Witch Finger Cookies

  • 1 stick Butter softened
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Egg Room Temperature
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Kelly Green Gel Food Coloring
  • 18 Almonds

Cookie Dip

  • 1/4 cup Butter softened
  • 1/4 cup Marshmallow Spread
  • 2 cups Confectioner's Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • Green Gel Food Coloring

Instructions

Cookies

  • In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar and egg.
  • In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Eventually, the cookie dough will form and you can use your hands to get all the ingredients incorporated with one another.
  • Place a small indentation into the cookie dough and add gel food coloring. Knead until completely tinted.
  • Cover in plastic wrap and chill overnight or, for one hour in the freezer.
  •  Remove from refrigerator and let sit until malleable.
  •  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  •  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  •  To make the fingers, divide cookie dough into spheres, about 1 ½ inches in size.
  •  Roll out each sphere into a thick strip, about ¾ of an inch in thickness and 3 inches long.
  •  Pinch each strip to give it a non-uniform look. I like to pinch them in two separate sections.
  •  Score lines on top of each cookie dough using a paring knife.
  •  Place each one on lined baking sheet, about 1-2 inches apart from each other.
  •  Press one almond at the tip of each cookie dough.
  •  Bake for about 7 minutes and remove from oven.
  • Proceed with caution for the next step: re-pinch each cookie to thin them out (as they spread during baking time – but be careful because they’ll be hot) then place them back in the oven for an additional 2 minutes
  •  Allow to cool before serving.

Cookie Dip

  • In a large bowl, beat together all ingredients with an electric mixer. Start on low speed and gradually increase to high.
