Method with step wise pictures:

  • Powder the sugar in a mixie. Add the soft butter to this.
  • Keep the butter in room temperature for sometime, you will get it soft butter.
  • Beat the butter and sugar mixture well.
  • Add vanilla essence to this and mix well.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  • Add the butter mixture to this.
  • Knead this well into a dough. Take equal portions of the dough , like a lemon size.
  • Blanch the almonds and cut them into 2 parts, but cutting in the center.
  • Make the portion of dough long. Put lines using a tooth pick.
  • Place it on a greased baking tray. I generally line my tray with baking sheet.
  • Press the end part of this with your thumb, to keep the nails.
  • Place it in the part where we pressed for the nails.
  • Bake it in a oven at 150 degrees for 12-15 minutes, till it is done.
  • I didn’t preheat the oven this time.
  • Cool down in a wire rack.
  • Witch finger cookies are ready to serve.
  • Enjoy your Halloween party.
