It’s that time of the year when we dress up, act scary, and eat a lot of candies. This year, to satisfy our sweet cravings on Halloween, we have come up with a recipe that is as spooktacular as it is delicious!
On top of being delicious, these creepy Matcha Witch Finger Cookies are very easy to make, requires a little baking, and is a super fun recipe to make with kids as the finger cookies will get scarier looking the less perfect you make them.
Total time: 15 minutes for mixing and shaping and 30 minutes for refrigeration.
Baking time: 20 minutes:
300g/1 cup Butter (Unsalted, softened) (you can also use coconut butter as a vegan substitute)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs (Vegan substitute: ½ cup silken tofu or ½ cup plant-based yogurt)
1 tsp coconut extract (optional)
2 cups all-purpose flour (you can also use Almond flour)
Pinch of salt
Almonds (Cut in halves)
In a mixing bowl, add flour, matcha powder, eggs, butter, sugar, salt, coconut extract and beat until the ingredients are well incorporated and the dough has an even green color.
Cover the mixture and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes until the batter is solid to shape matcha witch finger cookies for Halloween.
Preheat oven for at least 15 minutes at 180C.
Now start shaping the matcha witch finger cookies by taking a tbsp of dough and rolling it into a finger shape for each cookie. Use a toothpick stick or knife to make lines that look like knuckles. When the dough is shaped into witch fingers with knuckles press the half-cut almond into one end of each finger firmly.
(Tip: Do not shape super thick matcha fingers as they will expand while you bake them in the oven)
Place the matcha witch finger cookies for Halloween on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 170-175°C degrees for 20 minutes. Let the fingers cool down for a few minutes before serving.
Your Matcha witch finger cookies for Halloween are ready to enjoy! So, eat, drink, and be scary this Halloween with this deliciously spooky matcha recipe!
