1 each Egg
1 teaspoon Almond extract
1 teaspoon Vanilla
2¾ cup All purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking powder

Working with one quarter of the dough at a time, and keeping remaining dough refrigerated, roll heaping teaspoonful of dough into finger shape for each cookie. Press almond firmly into 1 end for nail. Squeeze in centre to create knuckle shape. Usiing paring knife, make slashes in several place to form knuckle. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake in 325F oven for 20-25 minutes or until pale golden. Let cool for 3 minutes. Lift up almond; squeeze red decorator gel onto nail bed and press almond back in place, so gel oozes out from underneath. Remove from baking sheets. Let cool on racks. Repeat with remaining dough.
