I absolutely love your finger cookies !!!! I cannot find red decorating gel but only red icing in tube (Wilton) and I never used it before.... can it be used instead the gel??
Thank you.

Best regards from Serbia

What about using Piping gel with coloring in it.....would that work??

OR mixing Vodka with a bit of red coloring?

I used regular piping gel and karo syrup with red. I wanted to do a side by side comparison. the gel is a little thicker and the karo syrup oozed out more. Im having a halloween party and will put the fingers in a little box for the guests to take home. so the people wont go home and open a sticky mess Im going to use red candy melts.

That's what I use, and it still looks good, but it firms up, it's not sticky or messy!

First I want to say thank you to lOIDA for the wonderful idea!! I made them last night and was giggling the whole time I was putting them together!
Someone commented earlier that they wished they could make them taste sweeter. After I made them I tried this and I think it added to the flavor but didn't take away from the looks at all! Make exactly like lOIDA said and then mix:
1 C powdered sugar
1 T karo
1 t almond extract
1t butter flavor
a few drops of water
Mix well, brush on with a pastry brush. Let dry. It dries pretty clear and it gives more flavor to them!!!
Again many thanks to lOIDA for the original idea! I can't wait to take these to work!!!

I made these last week, and they came out just like her picture. They are great. It did take me some time to find the sliced almonds, finally found them in the baking section of the store. Walmart should have them to. I am giving them to my neice and nephew tomorrow for halloween. Everyone who has seen them think they are gross, so I kow the kids will love them. They do taste more like a shortbread than a sweet cookie, but are still good. Thanks for the recipe and idea!

I've had a tradition for the last several years of serving these finger cookies to the kids when they come to the door. (Fortunately, where I live we know each other and the tradition still holds...)
I've had children shrink in fear when they first see them, hiding behind their mom's skirts, until reassured that they're just cookies.
Instead of using sliced almonds, sometimes difficult to locate, I just blanch whole almonds and split them with the tip of a paring knife. And I have tweaked the directions a little by painting the "cut end" with red gel and placing a white center of royal icing to simulate a bone. Deliciously gross.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

This is great! I was going to make some kind of cake with fingers for my hand therapist, but these will be so much better!

I made these last year for my daughter's 4th grade class and some of the kids wouldn't even eat them because they were completely grossed out LOL. They look so real and are so fun to make! Thank you so much for sharing!

So much for that idea!
