The countdown to Halloween is on, and there is much excitement in our house. We have been keeping busy planning our big Halloween bash and testing out all sorts of new Halloween-themed recipes to determine what will make it onto the final menu.
One of our must-have Halloween treats is pumpkin spice cookies. I love pumpkin spice everything (bars, muffins, waffles...the list goes on and on) and I make sure to keep a variety of different Krusteaz Pumpkin Spice mixes on hand throughout the season. So when the pumpkin spice mood strikes, I can easily whip up a delectable tastes-like-fall treat in no time.
The kids have been having so much fun baking and decorating Halloween themed cookies, so I decided we needed to get creative with our pumpkin spice cookies this year.
Witch Finger Cookies are a new and unexpected way to serve up our favorite flavor. And the finger-like appearance is sure to be a hit with our party guests. But the best part about this recipe is just how quick and easy they are to make!
Tips for Making Witch Finger Cookies
- When adding the food coloring, start with just one drop, then mix in and check the color. Continue to add and mix in one drop at a time until desired shade of green is achieved.
- Make sure to freeze the cookies for the full 15 minutes before baking. This will keep them in finger shape and prevent the dough from spreading.
- For an extra creepy effect, add red food coloring to the spiced vanilla glaze mix and drizzle onto completely cooled cookies.
