Freaky Fingers

Looking for something "freaky" to take to a halloween party?
This just might be the answer for you!
A fun little treat, that just might gross you out enough to not want to eat!
Freaky Fingers
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. salt
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder
red decorating gel
(this recipe actually makes about 4 dozen fingers, I halfed my recipe)
Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs and extracts.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add into creamed mixture.

Dough will be thick. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Once cooled, take dough into a small ball and shape into a
finger. Make sure it is thin...they get bigger as they cook.
Measurements would probably be 3 inches long by .5 inches wide.

Form them so that they look like a finger with knuckles.
Using the flat end of a knife, make an indent for the finger nail.
Then make 3 slices for the knuckle.
mmmm, doesn't that look FREAKY?
Let's take another look!
Bake at 325* for 20 minutes. I actually moved my tray
one shelf higher in the oven so the bottoms didn't burn.
Using the red gel, apply in the spot where the fingernails go
(almond slices) and then apply the slices.
They taste kinda like a sugar cookie, but they LOOK like fingers!
Happy Halloween!


  1. Super freaky - these are the only other fingers I'd bite (besides those of C8's)! By the way, would you mind if I linked to this recipe in my post for tomorrow?


Does it look good? Did you try it? Do tell!
