Ingredients

  • 1 roll Pillsburry soft breadsticks dough
  • 1 egg
  • 64 slices almond
  • food colors of choice

Instructions

  • If you want color fingers nails, mix food color with some water. Then brush to color one side of almond slices. Otherwise just use as is.
  • Line a baking tray or use non stick cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350 F or per package direction.
  • Unroll and place out some bread sticks onto flat surface (nonstick baking silicon mat if you have it)
  • Slice each bread sticks into 4 pieces of about 3 x 0.5 inch.
  • Use your fingers to roll each piece a bit, then taper on one end to make it shape like a finger.
  • Score some marks/lines across each piece with a knife like that of knuckle.
  • Arrange onto baking tray and repeat with other finger bread.

  • Once tray is filled, use your thumb to press down lightly to indent to narrow tapered end, then press a slice of almond on top.
  • Brush them all lightly with egg to add shine.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Check back often till they're lightly golden brown.
  • Once done, transfer to wire rack to cool.
  • Serve these warm (and a bit crispy) along with pumpkin soup or your favorite Halloween soup. If they're becoming soggy, reheat in oven for 5-7 minutes or so.
