A Trick for your Treats

Breadstick Dough Witch Fingers

My inner 6-year-old has had a lot of Halloween fun lately. . .

I was spellbound when I saw these witchy fingers from Woman’s Day~

An easy & fun trick~ conjuring 48 fingers out of one tube of Pillsbury refrigerated breadstick dough.

Conjuring Ingredients & Steps:

1 tube (11 oz) refrigerated breadstick dough

  • 1⁄2 stick (1⁄4 cup) butter, melted

  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon-sugar

  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten

  • 48 sliced natural (with skin) almonds

  • Heat oven to 375°F.

  • Crumple 4 large pieces of foil; shape each into a 15 x 2-in. log. Place on a baking sheet. (flatten your foil on the bottom so it doesn’t roll off the sheet!)

  • Unroll dough. Cut each of the rectangles crosswise in half, then lengthwise into 2 strips. Cut 1 end of each into a fingertip.

  • Roll strips in butter and drape over foil logs; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Brush fingertips with beaten egg; press an almond slice “nail” on each. (use a liberal amount of “egg glue” for each nail)

  • Bake 8 minutes until golden.
