These eerie shortbread-style biscuits look like witches' fingers and are perfect for your Halloween party!
I make these every year for Halloween, except I use jellybeans instead of almonds. They are always a huge hit. - 30 Oct 2016
I made these cookies for my son's school party and they were a great hit. We added green food coloring to the dough and when I took them out of the oven I added a single chocolate chip for a wart. We also added red gel food coloring for the severed end of the finger. The cookies do enlarge when baked (almost double the thickness) so make sure you don't make them to round when you are rolling them out. The cookie flavor was good on top of looking great, thanks for a fun recipe. - 17 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great recipe! Instead of using decorator gel, I dipped each almond in strawberry jam, and pressed them into the raw "finger" tip before baking... produced very gory results! - 29 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
