Bake the witch finger and decorate with almonds
You need the following ingredients:
- 300 g flour
- 125 g of butter
- 200 g sugar – even better powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 5 drops of vanilla flavor
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 30 unpeeled almonds
- 100 g of raspberry jam
Witchfinger Bake: The preparation
First place the flour, the butter and the egg in a large bowl and mix well the ingredients with the medium-level mixer until a homogeneous mixture forms.
Then add the salt, the baking powder and the vanilla flavor and stir the whole thing again to a smooth mass. Slowly add gradually the flour and stir continuously with the blender. The dough becomes slightly lumpy. But this can be deformed excellently with fingers. So, first knead it into a compact mass.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Place a large baking tray with baking paper or grease it with some oil. Begin to roll out the actual witchfingers from small pieces of dough, as shown in the picture below.

Then press each finger with your two fingers on top of it to form the joints. Using a toothpick or knife tip, then cut small strokes into the dough, as shown below.
This gives your Hexenfinger an even more realistic appearance after baking
With a sharp knife you halve all the almonds. You can either leave them unpeeled or boil briefly in hot water and pellet. We prefer the unpeeled version because it looks much more realistic and creepy.

Then place all the witchfinger with or without baking paper on the baking sheet and then into the preheated oven
After 20 minutes the witchfinger should be ready. Take them out of the oven and still when they are warm, take out the almonds one by one. At this point, you can now lubricate a bit of raspberry jam and cover with the almond kernel halves so that the fingers look even more authentic and creepier.
