Wool-less Wednesday: Halloween Witches' Fingers Cookies

These Halloween witches' fingers cookies have got to be the grossest things I have ever baked. Looking too real for comfort, they are always a hit at Halloween.

I cannot take the credit for these beauties above. 5boys2cook4  is the creative talent behind this batch of ugliness.

I have made these freakish cookies many Halloweens using a recipe from Canadian Living Magazine claimed to be their most popular Halloween recipe ever.

Using a shortbread cookie dough, you shape pieces of the dough into cylinders and mould them to look like a gnarled fingers. Red cake decorating gel and almonds create the disgusting fingertips.
Happy Halloween Baking!
