Eggless Spooky Witch Fingers

Halloween is around the corner and for our this month's Home Baker's Challenge, Nalini suresh of Nalini's Kitchen was the host of this month. She chosed a couple of spooky halloween bakes and i was very eager to bake this spooky witch fingers she suggested as soon as possible. Yes these witch fingers are in my to do list since ages i must say, last year i really wanted to make this fingers but finally i couldnt make coz of few changes with household stuffs also none at home was interested to eat these spooky fingers,so i gave up this bake. But this year, i was really excited when Nalini chosed this spooky witch fingers.

The recipe Nalini suggested was with an egg, since i dont want to make with egg, i chosed to make mine as eggless. I tried these fingers with a basic butter cookies dough and these spooky witch fingers came out extremely prefect. Beware they are very much addictive. Eventhough they are spooky,my kids simply loved munching them for their snacks.

1cup Butter (softened)
1/2cup Confectioner's sugar
1/2tsp Vanilla extract
2+1/2cups All purpose flour
Few whole almonds
1/4tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Salt

Combine the butter,sugar,vanilla extract in a bowl and beat it until they turns soft and fluffy.

Sieve together the flour and baking powder,salt.

Gradually add the flour mixture and turn everything as a soft dough.

Wrap it and keep in fridge for 30minutes.

Line the baking sheet onto a baking tray..Grease it.

Take a teaspoon of dough, with a wax paper roll the dough into a thin finger shapped cookies.

Press one almond into one end of each cookies.

With a sharp knife,make a small cut to give a more finger like appearance. Arrange the cookies on the baking sheet.

Bake the cookies for  15-20minutes.

Let them cool completely.

You can make them more spooky but squeezing a small amount of red decorating gel into the cavity and place the almond to make the gel ooze out around the tip of the cookie.
