This is now my favorite cookie recipe. What makes it so wonderful for me is that it is not only delicious, but it is about as easy as it gets to make.

The Hamsa Hand has been around since ancient times. It has had many purposes through the years, but the most common one is that it was used as a good luck charm to ward away the Evil Eye.
It was most commonly seen with an open right eye in the palm of the right hand with the fingers pointing downward. It is still seen commonly in jewelry necklaces etc. and is supposed to protect the owner of the amulet from the misdeeds of the Evil Eye.
The witches version is a bit more sinister. ElsBeth uses this hand to lure her unsuspecting victims into her Lair to meet their fate.
It is just the opposite of the Hamsa amulet in that it is the left eye set into the left hand with the fingers pointing upward.
What a great piece to add into any Halloween Decor, but looks ominous and especially creepy sitting next to a witch or her apothecary.
Add this into your decor and you will be sure to get some much desired comments. Everyone that has seen it comes up to it and at some point rubs the eye to see if it might be real. So far it has done its job of luring people to it. Is it just a Halloween decoration, or is it actually staring back at you? LOL!
