Ingredients for about 40 fingers

For the dought

  • 150 g butter, cold and chopped
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 and 3/4 cup of wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For decorations

  • Blanched almonds (i.e. without skin)

Preparation – Stage 1

Quickly mix the ingredients for the dough, form a ball and put in the fridge for about half an hour.

Preparation – Stage 2

Tear off pieces of walnut-sized dough and form fingers by rolling out the dough between your fingers. They should be a little thinner than real fingers. Press almond at the end of each finger. It should be well fixed in the dough so that it does not fall out after baking. Put your fingers on the baking tray.

Bake for about 10 minutes at 200 C. Then remove and leave to cool.

The witch’s fingers are ready. Enjoy your meal and scary 🙂


Additionally, you can add lines of red icing around the nail, which will imitate blood. It is rather an option for older children and adults, for children it can be too drastic.
