How to Make Gluten Free Almond Fingers for Halloween
Make Almond Fingers for Halloween
Have some good old ghoulish fun and cook up some finger food for Halloween. Make some almond fingers for your next Halloween party or take a batch to work. These funny Halloween cookies are so cute and so delicious that everybody will love them.
Here are mine prior to cooking!!
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Place 1 Xlitol, 1 cup of softened butter, 1 tsp. almond extract and 1 tsp. of pure vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl and beat them until the mixture is creamy. Beat in 2 3/4 cups of Gluten free flour, 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. baking powder.
Separate the dough into four portions, cover them with plastic wrap, and refrigerate them for at least 30 minutes.
Remove one portion from the refrigerator, and shape the dough into finger shapes, using about 1 tsp. of dough for each. The fingers may look thin, but they will puff up as they bake.
Place an almond "fingernail" in the end of each finger, and paint the almond red with red decorator gel. Use a paring knife to make some "knuckles" across the center of the fingers.
Put the fingers on an oiled baking sheet and bake until they turn light golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove them from the oven and put them on a wire rack to cool.
