1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 egg
1/2 tsp almond extract
7 drops neon green food color
36 whole blanched almonds
1/2 tsp red food color

Stir cookie mix, flour, melted butter, egg, almond extract & green food color until soft dough forms. Cover; refrigerate for 1 hour
Place almonds & red food color in resealable plastic bag; shake bag until almonds are evenly coated with food color. Place on paper plate & waxed paper to dry. Set aside
Heat oven to 375, for each cookie, roll heaping tsp of dough into 2 1/2-inch finger shape, place on cookie sheet
Press almond, colored side up, into one end of each "toe" to look like toenail. About 1 inch from each end of "toe", squeeze dough slightly with knife, gently make lines in dough to look like knuckles.
Bake 6-8 min (cookies should not brown on edges)

Super cute and fun!!
