    The devil is in the details on these! I love it! The knuckle marks and almond nails-nail it! The almonds & cream cheese must be the secret to them keeping their form. I made them with a regular sugar cookie recipe and they spread all over and were delicious but not the look I was going for!

    I've seen them dusted with a little cinnamon too-that makes them even eerier!

    Thanks for shaing & Good luck!

    It would have made it even creepier if you put food coloring in them and made them green like the traditional witches and maybe add red food coloring on the end for a bloody effect or fake edible blood lol

    we do sometimes color the dough green :) and dipping it in warmed strawberry jam or raspberry would be better than using red food coloring for the blood :)
