    I have made these cookies at least 8 times. Easiest recipe and they are delicious! I loved the "EEEWWW" affect, exactly what I was going for. I have made them other times not shaped like fingers and have dipped them in chocolate for something a little different.

    These were great,just like a shortbread cookie should be!I put a Whitches Brew Dip in a cauldron like bowl to go along with the fingers. Everyone loved them!
