Halloween Pistachio Witches Finger Cookies Pin for Later
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.
Every year, I make one more Halloween treat that the kids will enjoy. I just love pistachio flavored anything. It was no secret to my family that I solely made these cookies with myself in mind! I could eat the whole tray. They were so delicious, buttery, rich cookies. I ran out of whole almonds. I just made roasted pumpkin seeds and viola, perfect fingernails. The real look of them with the spices on them were the perfect addition to my witch fingers!
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!
