Witches Finger Cookies
2/3c butter (softened)
2tsp baking powder
2c or 3c flour (you'll understand when you read the recipe)
12 almond slices (or pumpkin seeds)
* cinnamon powder for brushing on the knuckles.
24 mini white marshmallows
red icing ( 1/4 cup icing sugar and a bit of butter) or red jam to hold the marshmallow "bones"
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Put sugar and butter in a mixing bowl and mix it with a wooden spoon until it is smooth and creamy.
Now add the eggs, vanilla, salt, baking powder, and mix really well.
To your wet mixture add a cup or so of flour, and mix.
If the dough is sticky, keep adding flour a 1/2 cup at a time until it is not sticky, and you can roll it in your hands easily.
Put some flour on your counter top and put a piece of parchment paper on your cookie sheet.
Take a heaping teaspoon of dough and roll it in your hands to make a small "snake".
*Remember these swell up a lot so make sure its about half the size you want the finished cookie to be.
Bake 375degrees for 10-12 minutes (don't burn them)
Let cool and brush some cinnamon on the knuckles.
You can also use a dot of red icing on the back of the finger to glue on a marshmallow bone if you'd like.
If you want them to look extra creepy dust a little cinnamon on them and dust it off with a clean small paint brush.
