These spooky witch finger cookies are tasty and easy to make. Using a combination of nut flours, we made a soft and chewy cookie with an uncanny look to them. Dipped in a bit of berry sauce, they also get a tangy twist that pairs perfectly with their buttery pastry.

Tips & Tricks

  • Do not substitute our marzipan recipe with store-bought marzipan. The latter probably contains honey and sugar, which you already know are not keto-friendly ingredients.
  • If you end up with any leftover marzipan, store it in a container or zip lock bag to prevent it from drying out.
  • Marzipan tends to harden when exposed to air. Soften it in the microwave on the lowest setting if necessary.
