Ingredients Serving: 10

  1. For Ghost and Witch finger cookies;
  2. 250 grams softened unsalted butter
  3. 350 grams self raising/plain flour
  4. 300 grams granulated sugar
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1.5 tablespoon vanilla Essence
  7. 10-12 almonds soaked overnight,peeled and halved
  8. Around 4-5 tablespoons of red coloured jam(mixed fruit or strawberry should do)
  9. Handful Hershey’s Choco chips
  10. For scary Oreo spider cookies:
  11. 1 pack, 250 grams of Oreo creme cookies(if desired flavour)
  12. 2 tablespoon heavy creme
  13. Tiny Hershey’s chocolates buttons(as needed)


  1. place the butter in a mixing bowl and Beat until soft peaks are formed
  2. Add in 1/2 the sugar and beat until incorporated, then repeat by adding the remaining sugar
  3. Once done, start adding the flour in portions and fold in well using a spatula
  4. Keep 4-5 tablespoon of the dough aside to be used for Oreo spider cookies
  5. You may want to refrigerate the dough wrapped in a cling film for an hour before beginning to shape the cookies(optional)
  6. Once done, align a baking tray with baking paper and put your gloves on
  7. Preheating the oven can be done when you are half way through your shaping process, as it may take sometime
  8. For the ghost cookies, option 1: if using a cookie cutter, it’s essential that you refrigerate the dough before shaping, as you want it to be firm
  9. Cut off ghost shaped cookies and place Choco chips to denote eyes
  10. Option 2: for shaping with hands, roll a lemon sized dough into s ball and flatten to form a tear/rain drop shape(easy option)
  11. Another way is to shape them like a pear and then place Choco chips.
  12. For witch fingers : take a dough portion lesser than a lemon
  13. Roll into a cylinder and place on the baking tray
  14. Press down gently using a fork to create marks (optional)
  15. Add a touch of jam on one end of the rolled finger (denoting blood)and place half an almond on the other end (denoting nail)
  16. Create all finger and ghost cookies similarly and as many as you need from the dough
  17. Halfway through shaping the cookies, preheat oven to 180 degree celcius
  18. Leave 1/2 inch gap between each cookie and place the tray in the oven once done
  19. Bake until the sides slightly brown and transfer the baked cookies on a rack to cool
  20. Oreo spider cookies:
  21. Mix melted chocolate/1/2 tablespoon of cocoa powder to the dough kept aside before
  22. Separate the biscuit shells and roll a pinch sized portions of the chocolate dough into tiny spider legs
  23. Cover with the shell once agin and press down gently. Keep aside to set
  24. Place the creme in a bowl and dip a chopstick end in it
  25. Create spider eyes and place chocolate buttons to create eyeballs..scary!! (You can break Choco chips into smaller pieces for eye balls if so not find small sized chocolate buttons)
  26. That’s it. Our scary Oreo spider cookies are ready
  27. store all the cookies airtight until the ‘big day’
  28. Happy Halloween!
