One of the big hits from last year's party were cookies made to look like Witch's fingers, here's a quick how-to so you can enjoy them yourselves this Halloween:
Step 1: Either make or purchase a basic sugar cookie or peanut butter cookie dough. I cheated and used store bought peanut butter cookie dough.
Step 2: On a lightly floured surface and with floured hands, roll the dough into very thin ropes, about 2 inches long.
Step 3: Using a small knife, score 3 thin lines in the centre of the ropes, to resemble knuckles.
Step 4: Place on a greased, or parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown, about 8 minutes.
Step 5: Once cooled, use royal icing (see recipe below), dyed your favorite colour and pipe on creepy nails
Step 6: ENJOY!!!!
