Witchy Finger Cookies

For a horrifyingly scrumptious desert, roll out sugar cookie dough into a thin line. (The dough will spread when baking). Score at the knuckles and apply an almond shard at the tip. Bake as directed. Brush cooled cookies with a little cocoa powder to add contrast. They are creepy but delicious!

Witch fun fact:
Witches are usually seen with a black cat, flying on a broom stick or stirring a cauldron, but in earlier times, witches were considered healers and women of wisdom. Their cauldron (pot), broom, and cat are all symbols associated with the women's work and the household.

Jack O' Lantern fun fact:
The jack o lantern dates back to a Celtic story of Jack Stringy, a drunk, who made two broken deals with the devil. Upon his death, neither God nor the devil would accept him. Jack wanted to make his way to heaven, so the devil threw him a piece of hot coal inside a carved turnip, but legend has it that Jack has been roaming the earth with it ever since. To scare away Jack or other wandering evil spirits, the Irish would make their own version of the jack o lantern by carving scary faces into turnips. As Halloween evolved in America, the turnip was replaced by the pumpkin.
