Spooky Witches' 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 whole almonds
  • 1 (.75 ounce) tube red decorating gel

Directions

Combine the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer; gradually add the flour, baking powder, and salt, continually beating; refrigerate 20 to 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
Remove dough from refrigerator in small amounts. Scoop 1 heaping teaspoon at a time onto a piece of waxed paper. Use the waxed paper to roll the dough into a thin finger-shaped cookie. Press one almond into one end of each cookie to give the appearance of a long fingernail. Squeeze cookie near the tip and again near the center of each to give the impression of knuckles. You can also cut into the dough with a sharp knife at the same points to help give a more finger-like appearance. Arrange the shaped cookies on the baking sheets.
Bake in the preheated oven until the cookies are slightly golden in color, 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove the almond from the end of each cookie; squeeze a small amount of red decorating gel into the cavity; replace the almond to cause the gel to ooze out around the tip of the cookie. Enjoy !

A nice witch finger recipe to try !
Ingredients:

* 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
* 4 chicken cutlets
* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 egg, beaten
* 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
* 1 (6-ounce) can black olives, drained
* 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded

Instructions:
Grease a cookie sheet with vegetable oil and set aside. With an adult's help, carefully slice the chicken cutlets with a knife or clean scissors into strips about the width of 1 finger. Do not cut them perfectly straight - the more crooked, the better.

Put the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs into separate soup bowls and line the bowls up next to each other. Dust the chicken strips with flour, working with 2 or 3 at a time. Then dip them into the bowl of beaten egg. Roll each strip in breadcrumbs. Place strips on the greased cookie sheet.

With an adult's help, broil Witch's Fingers for 5 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown.To make witch fingernails, cut the olives in half lengthwise. Trim the halves into pointy nail shapes. Carefully place olives on hot Witch's Finger "tips" and arrange on a shredded head (of lettuce, of course!)
The witch finger recipe is ready....Bon appetit! Enjoy the party !
