Spooky Witch Fingers

Halloween is around the corner and my daughter, Carmella is thrilled. 
We made some spooky delicious sugar cookies.   We shared with the neighbors and friends.

Witch Fingers

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups organic cane sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 F.
In bowl, beat butter and sugar.  Beat in eggs and extracts mix well.  Combine flour and salt, stir with fork.  Add to butter mixture.  Beat until well blended.
Lay an almond at the tip of each nail.  Press a little dough into each finger cavity...2/3 full.  Bake 7-9 minutes.  If the fingers get too brown the cookie will not be as soft.   Bake to your taste.
