Mmmm, fingers! Ingredients:
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup almonds
- strawberry jelly
- Combine the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl and beat together; gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt, continually beating; refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 325°. Lightly grease baking sheets.
- Remove dough from refrigerator in small amounts. Scoop 1 teaspoon at a time onto waxed paper. Use the waxed paper to roll the dough into a thin finger-shaped cookie. Press one almond into the end of each cookie to give the appearance of a long fingernail. Use fork tines to create lines in the middle for the knuckles.
- Bake until the cookies are slightly golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Smear some strawberry jelly on the end without the almond to show the blood where the fingers were severed.
