Bloody Vegan Witches Finger Cookies
1 cup vegan butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon The Vegg with 1/2 cup got water
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract (other extracts can be used)
5 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
-Green Food Coloring, to desired color (Optional)
1/2 cup almond slices (Decoration)
Frosting Recipe Below
When you dough has chilled and your ready to bake, heat your oven to 325 Degrees
When you are ready to bake, you will need to mold the cookies. (You can either free style the mold by hand or find a mold to help the process. I was able to find molds at the Dollar Store or local party supply stores. Great find, sometimes comes in silicone for easier molding.)
|Mold I found & used for the Cookies|
*Keep cookie dough fingers a little on the medium-thin side as the cookie will puff and grow slightly while baking. You can use your own finger as a guide, same length and thickness (obviously a easy way...get it finger/finger cookies)
If dough gets sticky or warm and hard to work with, place back in the refrigerator for a little while. I took one bag out at a time and left the other in the fridge while I molded the dough. Again, you don't want the dough to get warm.
Place fingers on a baking sheet, either plain or lined with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
|Dip "severed" edges & Sprinkle with Crystals|
Once the cookies are decorated and the frosting has hardened, serve. These cookies are great for Halloween, parties, events, or just a fun treat for the kids. A great recipe for them to help with and be creative, a great use of family time. Enjoy!
"Bloody" Vegan Frosting
1/3 cup vegan butter or vegan shortening at room temperature
2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 to 2 Tablespoons vegan milk
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract\
In the stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the vegan butter and the extract on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 1 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Turn the mixer to low (stir setting), add the powdered sugar, mix until incorporated. Increase the speed to medium high and beat until fluffy while adding in the vegan milk, about 2 to 3 minutes, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
Once the frosting has combined, switch the mixer to low, gradually add in the food coloring. You can add as much or as little to get to the desired color that you want. Beat on on medium high until the frosting is airy and thoroughly mixed (stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed). Once the frosting is mixed, you are ready to decorate. Enjoy!
