Witch Fingers

A Halloween necessity at our house.

Makes 3 to 4 Dozen

pretzel dough
green and yellow food coloring
large pot of boiling water
1/4 c honey
1 egg beaten with 1 T water
roasted pumpkin seeds

Add food coloring to pretzel recipe.  Let dough rise as directed.  Roll pretzel dough into long ropes.  Cut slightly longer than size of finger.  Squish dough in the spots for knuckles, twice in the middle and again at one end.  Add honey to boiling water.  Drop fingers in boiling water.  After fingers rise to the surface place on parchment lined cookie sheets.  Cut slits in knuckles.  Brush with egg wash.  Add seeds for finger nailes and rosemary for hair.  Sprinkle with salt.  Bake at 450F for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on finger size.
