Witch finger cookies recipe, Halloween cookies

Witch finger cookies is one such fancy and spooky cookies made with basic sugar cookies dough. Yes you heard it right! These finger cookies are super easy to achieve and yummy to taste. It does not take much time to make it as needs no dough refrigeration also needs no special cutters/ molds too. Sounds great right! I made these cookies last year for Halloween at home and everybody loved it, that time I did not picture it, I made these cookies again this time to post it in the blog. These cookies are supposedly to be in green color to denote exact witch fingers since I don’t like adding artificial color to my foods I avoided it , but just for one day its actually okay but since I was not convinced I skipped that part. But if you presenting it in a Halloween party adding color would be great idea and kids can get spooked. So for the blood part in the picture I used regular fruit jam which gave me realistic look. I used almonds as nails which actually adds to the cookie taste. So if you are planning to host a Halloween party this time try these cookies and I sure everyone will like it. So lets get to the making!

(I made 2 batches that’s why there is less in this tray) When sides are browned remove the biscuits from oven, place it on a cooling tray for it to cool down.
  7. In a microwave safe bowl heat jam for 15 seconds until watery. When the biscuits have cooled dip it in jam and serve them. Store the remaining cookies that’s not dipped in jam in air tight container.
