Kids Halloween Party Foods – Spooky Witches Fingers

Spooky Fingers

Boo!  These cookies are so much fun at a Halloween  party.  Easy enough for kids to make and decorate with just the right amount of spookiness. Yikes, I’m frightened already. 


  • 1-1/4 cups Sliced Almonds, divided
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1/4 tsp. green food coloring (more or less according to your color preference)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1-1/2 cups flour


  1. HEAT oven to 325ºF.
  2. RESERVE 40 nuts for later use; process remaining nuts in food processor until finely ground. Beat next 6 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour.. Stir in ground nuts. (Dough will be stiff.)
  3. ROLL dough into 40 (3-inch) “fingers,” using 1 Tbsp. dough for each. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Press 1 reserved nut into end of each dough finger for the fingernail. Use sharp knife to make 3 crosswise slits in top of each finger for the knuckles.
  4. BAKE 15 to 20 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 3 min. on baking sheet; carefully transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.
