bloody witch finger cookies
 
 
gross! my friend kristin made these one halloween. you can make them 
peoples' fingers by leaving out the green food coloring. 
 
1 cup  (250 ml) butter, softened
1 cup  (250 ml) powdered sugar
1   egg
1 tsp  (5 ml) almond extract
1 tsp  (5 ml) vanilla extract
2-3/4 cup  (675 ml) flour
1 tsp  (5 ml) baking powder
1 tsp  (5 ml) salt
3/4 cup  (175 ml) whole blanched almonds
1   tube (19 g) red decorating gel
  green food coloring
 
in a mixing bowl, beat together butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and 
vanilla; beat in the flour, baking powder and salt. add green food coloring 
to dough, a few drops at a time, until you achieve a nice witchy green 
color. divide the dough into four equal parts, cover and refrigerate for 30 
minutes. preheat oven to 325f (160c). take one quarter of dough at a time 
from the refrigerator. break off one heaping teaspoonful (5 ml) and roll it 
into a finger shape, enclosing a stripe of the red decorating gel within 
(later, when someone takes a bite, the gel will ooze out like blood! ooh, 
scary!). press an almond firmly into one end for a nail. squeeze in around 
the middle of the finger to create a knuckle shape. using a butter knife, 
make indents in several places to resemble a finger. repeat with rest of 
dough. 
place cookies on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 
minutes. let cool three minutes. gently lift up the almond; squeeze red 
decorating gel onto the nailbed and press the almond back in place, so gel 
oozes out from underneath. remove cookies from baking sheets and let them 
cool on wire racks.
