Bake witch fingers and decorate with almonds
You need the following ingredients:
- 300 g of flour
- 125 g of butter
- 200 g of sugar – even better powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 5 drops of vanilla flavor
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 30 unshelled almonds
- 100 g raspberry jam
Bake witch fingers: The preparation
First put the flour, butter and egg in a large bowl and stir well the ingredients with the blender at medium speed until a homogeneous mixture forms.
Then add the salt, baking powder and vanilla flavor and stir again to a smooth mass. Then slowly add the flour gradually and stir continuously with the blender. The dough gets a bit lumpy. This can be perfectly deformed with fingers. So, first knead it into a compact mass.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Lay out a large baking tray with baking paper or grease it with a little oil. Then, starting from small pieces of dough, begin to roll out the actual witch fingers, as shown in the picture below.

Then press each finger with your two fingers on top of it to form the finger joints. Using a toothpick or a knife tip, carve small strokes into the dough as shown below.
This will give your witch fingers an even more realistic look after baking
With a sharp knife you have been cutting in half all almonds. You can either leave them unpeeled or, if desired, boil briefly in hot water and peel. We prefer the unpeeled version because it looks much more realistic and scary.

Then place all the witch fingers with or without baking paper on the baking sheet and then in the preheated oven
After 20 minutes, the witch fingers should be ready. Take these out of the oven and when they are warm, take out the almonds one after the other. At this point you can now smear a bit of raspberry jam and cover with the almond halves to make the fingers look even more authentic and scary.
