A Little Creepy......

Hey! Check out the "Witch fingers" I made for Pickle Pants' Birthday/Halloween Party! How fun and creepy are these!?!?

The first time I saw these was at a Halloween Stamping Party Donna hosted several years ago. I've been wanting to try to make them ever since. Well, the party coming up this weekend was the perfect excuse! Thanks Barb (Donna's Mom) for the recipe!

Here it is in case you NEED to have some creepy Witch's fingers at your house for Halloween!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1 egg
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla
2 ¾ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¾ cup whole blanched almonds
1 tube red decorator gel

In bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla, beat in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover and
Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Work with ¼ of the dough at a time. Roll heaping teaspoon of dough into finger shape for each cookie.
Press almond firmly into one end for nail. To form knuckle, make a small impression in about the middle and then put small slits with a paring knife. Place lightly on greased baking sheet. Bake in 325 oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until pale golden.
Let cool for 3 minutes, lift up almond, squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back in place so gel oozes out from underneath.
Remove from baking sheets; let cool on racks.
Hope you are having a great week!
