Made the recipe exactly as shown EXCEPT I only used 1/2 tsp salt. I could probably cut that back to 1/4 tsp since my butter is salted. Read other recipes about fingers puffing up too much and to not use a leavening agent. I rolled my fingers to 1/2" and what puffing they did was perfect. I made the cookie dough the night before...then made my fingers and put them in the fridge, turned my oven on and when it was ready took my fingers out of the fridge and put them on the cookie sheet to bake. To make them look as realistic as possible I rolled them to about 1/2" wide shaped the knuckles and used a toothpick to indent knuckle wrinkles, then scratched a few wrinkles in between so it looked like skin vs smooth cookie. The other end I stuck my finger in it so it looked like it is the end of a finger vs a rolled out cookie. Made about 36 fingers. Pretty flakey, good. If you like it sweet, make some colored frosting or have melted chocolate available to dip. This recipe served it's purpose well! Almost forgot! I got the "formula" for flesh color from Yahoo. 8 drops yellow, 6 drops red, 2 drops green. I added it to the dough until it became flesh color.
