    Title: Severed Finger Cookies
    Categories: Fixit
    Yield: 16 servings

    2 tb Red food coloring
    16 Whole almond halves
    2 lg Eggs; divided
    1/2 c Butter; room temp
    1/2 c Powdered sugar
    5 tb White sugar
    1/4 ts Almond extract
    1/4 ts Vanilla extract
    1 3/4 c A-P flour
    1 ts Baking powder
    1/4 ts Salt
    1/4 c Cherry pie filling

    Set oven @ 325ºF/165ºC. Lightly grease baking sheets.

    Place red food coloring in a bowl. Add almond halves and
    let sit until almonds are a deep red color.

    Separate one egg. Set egg white aside. Beat butter,
    sugars, egg (and additional yolk), almond extract and
    vanilla extract in a bowl with a handheld mixer. Once
    creamed, gradually add flour, baking powder, and salt
    until fully mixed. The mixture will be thick in

    Wrap dough in wax paper or plastic wrap and place in the
    fridge to cool for about 30 minutes.

    Once dough has chilled, split in half. Keep the half you
    aren’t using chilled in the fridge while you work.

    On a lightly floured surfance, place the dough and break
    into pieces (less than an inch wide) and form fingers.
    Using the back of a small knife, make small "knuckle"
    indents and squeeze cookie gently in where the knuckle
    should be. Place the almond on the top of the finger and
    make a few additional indents underneath the almond.

    Gently brush the finger with egg white and bake for
    about 15 minutes or until fingers are golden brown.

    Drizzle cherry pie filling (mashed) over the ends of the
    fingers to make them appear severed. Dip fingers in
    additional filling and enjoy!
