How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Place almonds in a bowl, drizzle on enough red food coloring to coat almonds.
  • Stir almonds around so that they are evenly colored.
  • Place almonds on paper towel-lined platter to dry.
  • Work with one half of the dough at a time and keep the remainder refrigerated.
  • Scoop dough into tablespoonful-sized balls.
  • Roll each piece of dough into a finger shape.
  • Press 1 almond, pointy-end out, firmly into 1 end of cookie finger to form a nail.
  • Press the tines of a fork lightly into the dough just below the nail and in the center of the finger to form knuckles.
  • Place cookies, about 1-inch apart, on parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  • Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes or until pale golden.
  • When cookies are done, let cool on cookie sheet for 3 minutes. Remove cookies to platter to cool completely.
  • Repeat with remaining dough and almonds.

    I must apologize to you about this recipe. I recently posted this recipe myself but under a different name (Witchs Fingers) I try to do a search to make sure I'm not repeating someone elses recipes, but with it being a different name it didn't show up & I found it as I was checking your recipes. Very sorry about that.
    ps. I went back & checked my recipe & I guess our recipes are different, but I felt bad when I saw the picture

    Aww..I talked to my daughter's teacher this morning. Snacks and treats have to be store bought! But I will certainly try making these for her b-day party on Monday night.
