How to make Halloween finger cookies

post #1 of 67
Thread Starter 
I've had a lot of requests for the recipe and instructions for how to make the halloween finger cookies I've posted here on cc, I've decided this is the best way to share this so that as many of you can hopefully have as much fun as we did making these! good luck!

1 c. butter (NO substitutes), softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
2 3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
red decorating gel
sliced almonds

In mixing bowl, cream butter & sugar. Beat in egg & extracts. Combine flour, baking powder & salt, add gradually to mixture. Cover & refridgerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle. Roll into 1inch balls, shape that into 3 inch by 1/2 in "finger" shape. Using the flat tip of a butter knife, make an indentation on one end of each for fingernail bed. With knife edge, make 3 slashes in the middle of the finger for "knuckle". Place 2" apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake @325 degrees for 20-25 mins or until lightly browned. Cool for 3 minutes. Squeeze a small bit of gel on nail bed, press an almond over the gel, allowing gel to ooze around the "nail". Let cool completely on wire racks. Makes about 4 dozen.

PS. I've also experimented with putting in a little coconut extract instead of the almond extract and it came out great!

Thanks so much for sharing. I did see these by Martha Stewart online, but I do have to say that I thought yours looked better. LOL. They don't at all look like a cookie! Great job! Wish me luck, I will be making them next week. Can only hope they turn out as well!

ok, if anyone is thinking of taking a short cut and using the sugar cookie batter that comes in the roll....... don't.

my fingers just spread out into a wrinkled blob....... icon_cry.gif
