Spooky Witch Fingers


This is a fun recipe from Allrecipes.

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. confectioners' sugar
1 egg
1 t. almond extract
1 t. vanilla extract
2 2/3 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
whole almonds
red decorating gel
Combine the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla extract in a bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer, gradually adding the flour, baking powder, and salt. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes. Scoop 1 heaping teaspoon of dough at a time onto a piece of waxed paper. Roll the dough into a thin, finger-shaped cookie. Press 1 almond into one end of each cookie to give the appearance of a long fingernail. Shape the knuckles and cut wrinkle lines in each finger. Bake for 15-18 minutes in a 325° oven. After baking, remove each almond, squeeze a small amount of red gel into the cavity, and replace the almond to cause the gel to ooze out around the almond.

Do you know that these look so scary to me that I can't even consider making them? Really! They are fun, in a scary way!
