If you want to scare your guests, this is the perfect way to do so. This is one of the spooky cookies that will make your friends feel like cannibals. The fingers will look so realistic that they'll have to be careful not to bite into their own hand.
2 tablespoons red food coloring
30 blanched almonds
2 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
5 tablespoons granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
Use food coloring to paint the almonds red. Separate one egg and set aside the white. Whisk together the yoke, vanilla, and second egg. In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar and salt, then add the egg mixture and flour. Chill for 30 minutes. Divide dough in half, shape it, and press the almond onto the top of each 'finger.'
