Witches Fingers

1 C. butter, softened
1 C. powdered sugar
1 egg
1 t. almond extract
1 t. vanilla
2 3/4 C. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
3/4 C. 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.

Working with one-quarter of the dough at a time while keeping remaining dough refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoons of dough one at a time into finger shape for each cookie. Press almond firmly into one end for nail. Squeeze in center to create knuckle shape.

Using a paring knife, make slashes in several places to form knuckle. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet in 325F. oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until pale or 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 cookie sheet and let cool. Repeat with remaining dough.

Makes about 5 dozen fingers.
