For the fingers: almond slivers red cake decorator gel
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients and add to butter mixture. Mix well.
Chill for 1 to 2 hours
Break off silver dollar sized pieces and roll in your hands to a long tube tht will resemble a finger. Using a butter knife, make three indents to resembe the knuckle. Make a small indent where the "fingernail" (almond) will go.
Bake on ungreased baking sheet at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until just beginning to turn brown around the edges.
Remove from oven and allow to cool. When cooloed, put decorator gel on the fingertip to hold the almond sliver (fingernail) in place. For added creepy effect, you can squeeze some red gel at the severed end of the finger to resemble blood!
