Chill dough in fridge for about 1 hour

Once chilled, shape dough into witches fingers and place on baking sheet

Place almond as finger nail on each cookie

Bake at 325* for 20 minutes

Keep dough in fridge between shaping/baking times so it doesn't get too soft

When cookies cool, remove almond nails one at a time, place red gel under nail and refasten.
