I might give them a try again today. I have used this recipe three years in a row now! They look so gross but taste so good! Just made these with my grandson and they looked fine until we cooked them and they just spread into one big flat mass with almonds in. Don't know what we did wrong!!!! I'm so sorry you had problems. I have not experienced the fingers spreading out. Try refrigerating the dough next time??? I have made this recipe a few times now over the years around Halloween and I love it.
It's always a hit at the office.

To make the fingers extra creepy looking I cut the finger with a knife at the other end to make it look like they were severed off the hand and then I brush on some of the red decorating gel on the end to make them look like bloody severed fingers. Happy Halloween! Can these b made ahead like a day or 2 and put in tpperware container and should container b put in fridge or cupboard. Yes they can be made in advance. I have put them in the freezer for a week.
They are pretty much a shortbread cookie, which will keep in a container for several days. Love the step-by-step guide with the pictures and the laughs to go with it! Will be trying this soon. Thank you. Hmmmmm…did you refrigerate them for at least 30 min? You may need to add an additional 2 tbl. I love them. Please allow me to add to my Halloween recipes ideas thanks! Just made these for my son's class for tomorrow…they are amazing! He loves how creepy they look. He even helped make them!
Thanks for the recipe! Made these last night for son's party today. He said mom these are creepy looking lol i said good thanks for posting. Ha ha. That's so funny. You baked complete success. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe.
Rest assured it will be used for evil :. Still laughing about the second witch hand. Don't be so critical of your hands… I'm the same way ha ha ha. I just want to say this is a great recipe and thanks so much for sharing. But please don't say such bad things about yourself. Your hands may appear aged, as have mine, but your hands, and nails, look just lovely to me! Very well maintained, NOT another witch hand at all!!
I really don't think so. The dough will spread out and you will have a flat blob with an almond stuck to it. Pre-made cookie dough is less than delicious. These cookies may look gross, but taste delicious. They're more along the lines of a shortbread. Yes, you can use with pre-made cookie dough, just add one cup flour to the dough. If it gets too hard, add a couple of drops of water and work it in really well! You are even more awesome than the finished product. Loved the commentary and wish you were my neighbor! Happy holidays. Just made these last night, and they were great.
We joke that something that tastes so good has never felt so wrong! I couldn't find blanched whole almonds anywhere here five stores! Thanks Cristina. You made me laugh out loud. I'll be more careful about bashing myself. I really think you can make these witch fingers with chocolate. I think you'd be fine adding a few tablespoons of cocoa powder. Let me know how they work out. This is super impressive.

A couple of questions please, can we make a chocolate form of this? Is the texture of this thing crispy wafer like or soft cookie like?
Lastly, please do not badmouth your hands. We're your fans, we love what those hands can do. And the only reason you can conjure up such wonderful recipes to share is because those hands are willing to experiment instead of sitting pretty being pictured for some glossy magazine and struggling to not clutch at that next batch of fresh cookies. These are so fun.. Thanks for sharing! Check out my Giveaway and join in that..

In a large mixing bowl, add the softened butter. Add powdered sugar. Add egg, vanilla and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and creamy. Set aside on waxed paper or parchment paper to dry while you prepare the rest of the recipe. Gather the pretzels. Break or cut each rod in half. Tips If you can't find blanched almonds, take whole, skin-on almonds and place them in a pan of boiling water for 1 minute.
Drain the almonds, let them cool slightly, then pinch the nuts between your fingers—the skins should slip right off. Witches fingers can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one month. Recipe Variations If you don't want to use almonds painted with food coloring, substituting chocolate-dipped almonds or uncoated almonds is an easy and delicious swap. And if nuts are an issue, instead of almonds, make the nails out of candy corn dipped in chocolate or painted with black gel food coloring, or use black licorice cut to shape and stick them on with a dab of melted candy coating.
