WHOOPS SORRY..I mean CHEF,
that will be making them!
A fun time of the year.
BOOoooo! and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!
I found this recipe at my Dotors office in a magazine!
grease a cookie sheet
Beat with an electric beater until the mixture is creamy.
Then beat in the flour,salt, and baking powder.
Separate the dough into 4 portions.
Cover them with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Remove one portion from the refrigerator, and shape the dough into finger shapes, using about 1 teaspoon of dough for each finger,
They may look thin, but they will puff up as they bake.
Before baking place an almond "fingernail" in the end of each finger, and paint around the nail with red jel.
Use a paring knife to make some knuckles across the center if each finger.
Put the fingers on the prepared cookie sheet and bake till light golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
Remove from oven, let cool on a wire rack.
Repeat with the remaining dough.
