A delicious bewitching cookie!



These are very much like a cream cheese butter cookie.


I didn't add green food coloring to the dough, however you can.


I left them the color that the dough became with all natural ingredients.


To get a witchy green effect just add a few drops into the dough when mixing.

Get A Sharp Knife



Easy to make indentations to make the fingers look scary, you just need a sharp knife.


This pistachio dough is not only delicious but easy to mold and form into pistachio fingers.

Party Fun!



Every year, I make one more Halloween treat that the kids will enjoy, maybe you remember my Wicked Witch of the East Cupcakes from the Wizard of Oz recipe?


I just love pistachio flavored anything.


It was no secret to my family that I solely made these cookies with myself in mind!

Addicting Cookies



I could eat the whole tray. They were so delicious, buttery, rich cookies.


I ran out of whole almonds to use on the nails or slivered almonds which either one work great.


After making a batch of my Italian Roasted Pumpkin seeds,


they actually worked out to be the perfect nails.


They really looked old and gnarly nails because of the spices on them and were the perfect addition to my witch fingers!

Fun and Scarey!



These were a big hit with all the neighborhood kids who came to the door.


First they were hesitant to eat them because they looked pretty darn ghoulish.


One taste and they were hooked. This is a keep recipe for every year.


I think making them into long sticks and dipped in chocolate then in pistachios would be a perfect cookie for the Christmas tray also.


Hmm that's another cookie made just for me, a fun bewitching party cookie and the best Halloween Pistachio Witches Finger Cookies !


Don't forget to make a batch of my Wicked Witch Cupcakes and have a fabulous Halloween Party!
