Halloween cookies

Here are the Halloween cookies that we will be enjoying today. “Dead” fingers, green witches finger and then the Halloween cookies decorated with royal icing. I got inspired by the recipe from Martha Stewart for the “dead” and witches fingers.

I gave both a light dusting with some cocoa powder. I think that I like the white ones the best.

My Halloween cookies turned out just as I planed. I want to share a great tip with you. When decorating cookies then let them dry underneath a work lamp. It works really good and you can pipe the final details on the cookie the same day, of course depending on what time you start flooding your cookies.

I will jump on my broomstick and fly out into the night. Happy Halloween everyone!

Happy Caking!

    So “nice” looking. I just made theese but mine like “meltet” (flød ud) in the oven – do you know why?

      Hej, beklager det sene svar. Men grunden kan være at din dej har været for blød. For at mindske at lige netop denne slags cookies flyder ud er at rulle dem meget tynde.

    Are you using the same cutter for the icing and the biscuits?  All your cookies look FABULOUS by the way!!

      Yes, same cutter for the fondant on the cookie.

    Whoah! This is my first time to see your blog posts but believe me, I really admire how you’ve come up with very nice Halloween cookies. I’m inspired with your creativity and interest in baking cookies. I hope it will not only look good but will taste even better.

    Hi Lousie! Oh I love this website already, Im so glad I found it. I live in the Philippines and could not find modelling tools that I could use with fondant…can I buy clay modelling tools from craft stores instead? Would you recommend this? Thanks in advance for entertaining my question.

    I love the green fingers! They’re the perfect shade of green – not too green. So cute! I just love Hallween. It’s one of favourite times for baking because you can get really creative. Love your cookies!

    I love the “dead” fingers, there so beautiful (i don’t know if it’s the good word, because it was for Halloween) lol.

    Love the finger cookies so much! The white ones are also my favorite, and I’d looooove to see how you made them. Spectacular!

  12. Natalie says

    I LOVE the white witches fingers they are so effective!!! The cookies have turned out really well! Did you use a gel paste or dust in the end to colour the green fingers? 🙂

  13. says

    Wow, those are truly fabulous. I love the Green Witches’ fingers best. The dead ones made me go “waaah” when the pic came up. Creepy! :oP
