Sanhain Witches fingers

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
1 egg

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
