Magda is a Polish blogger who writes in both Polish and English and lives in Dublin, Ireland. If anyone can beat that bio, let me know!

Her English-written blog is called Magda’s Cauldron and in it, she has a slew of simple, comforting dishes that remind her of home. Her photos are crisp and interesting, and while she does feature classic Polish foods like pierogi, pączki and gołąbki, she’s also got some very creative and clever baked goods up her sleeve.

Take these Witch’s Finger cookies, for example. She makes a simple sugar cookie-style dough scented with almond, then forms it into the shape of knobby, disfigured witch fingers and pokes almonds into the ends for “fingernails.”

These cookies will spook kids and adults alike, while satisfying everyone’s sweet tooth. Whip up a batch of these spooky almond witch fingers tonight and you’ll have everyone shivering at these tricky treats tomorrow! Happy Halloween!
