Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Crumble dough into medium bowl. Stir or knead dough with flour and green food color until well mixed. (DO NOT EAT RAW COOKIE DOUGH AFTER COMBINING WITH FLOUR.)
  • 3
    Shape into 65 (3/4-inch) balls. Shape each ball into a 4-inch finger. Press sliced almond onto end of each finger. Using toothpick, make 3 indentations just below the almond “fingernail” and another 3 indentations in the middle of each finger to form the knuckles.
  • 4
    Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet; bake 7 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned just around edges. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Store in covered container at room temperature.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Make sure to thoroughly knead the green gel food color into the dough to get an even color without streaks.
  • tip 2
    Make this spooky Witches Fingers Cookies recipe your own—use decorating gels and cookie icings to decorate as desired.
  • tip 3
    For best results, bake your Witches Fingers Cookies on the middle oven rack. For even baking, it’s best to bake one sheet at a time.
  • tip 4
    When baking batches of witch finger sugar cookies, use completely cooled cookie sheets. Cookies will spread too much if put on a hot or warm cookie sheet.
