What you need:

8 oz / 227g   butter at room temperature

4oz / 113g  sugar

2 tsp water

2 tsp vanilla essence

8 oz /227g  flour

4 oz / 113g  finely chopped almonds

whole almonds for “fingernails”

1 tube red decorators icing

What you do:

Preheat oven to 160C / 325F / gas mark 3.

In mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.

Add water and vanilla; mix well. Blend in flour and nuts. Mix until incorporated.

Scoop dough into a ball and refrigerate until well chilled, about 2 hours.

To make cookies: 

Shape the dough into fingers about 3 inches long by rolling a piece of dough between hands, pinching slightly on either side of the “knuckle” area.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet and put a whole almond on the end for the nail, pushing down slightly. Leave the other end of the finger a little uneven to get that “severed” look! With a knife, make three tiny lines across the “knuckle” area of the finger…whats a knuckle without a few wrinkles?

Bake  for around 20 minutes. Remove and let cool completely.

When cool, squirt some of the red decorators icing onto the “severed” end of the finger.
