Sanhain Witches fingers
They look like gnarly fingers and taste like shortbread cookies. Serving these will make you a hit at any Samhain ritual. Can even be served at a kids party. They look like you bought them from a specialty shop.
1 cup butter
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
beat together then add
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 2/3 cup flour
mix together until it makes a ball.
put in fridge for 1 hour.
working fast take about 1 tbls full and roll into a very lean finger (it doubles while cooking)pinch a knuckle at the half way mark and again at the one forth mark. put an almond at the end continue until all the dough is gone.
I rolled them between my hands and made them about the same length as my hand sideways.4-5 inches.
cook at 325 for 25 minutes.
take out and pop off the almonds.
In a small bowl put about two tbls red raspberry jam.
Mic for 10-20 seconds until it liquefies. Put a dab in the indent where almond was and replace the almond. let cool and serve
