Recipe HELP Needed

Some of you may recall that on Halloween I made some treats to take to a family function. One of the recipes I made was the Savory Witch Fingers. The recipe called for Red Pepper Sauce. The recipe is as follows: Usually a sweet creation based on shortbread cookie dough. This recipe, however, is a savory one, where ground pistachios, cheese, almonds and other ingredients create a somewhat earthy tasting bite that would go well with blood-red wine. Preparation time: 25 minutes Cooking time: 20-22 minutes Makes 20-24 fingers 3/4 cup unsalted, shelled pistachios 11/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 lb butter, at room temperature 1 cup grated cheddar cheese red pepper jelly 20-24 whole, blanched almonds Place the pistachios in a food processor and pulse until the pistachios are almost powder. Transfer pistachios into bowl and whisk in the flour, baking powder, cayenne and salt. Place the butter and grated cheese in another bowl and beat until very light. Add the dry ingredients and beat well until a soft dough forms. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Take 2 Tbsp of dough and form into 1/2 inch wide, oblong finger shape and set on the baking sheet. Shape a knuckle in the center of the finger and slash a few wrinkles into the dough. Repeat with the remaining dough, spacing fingers about one inch apart. Make an indentation at the end of each finger. Put 1/2 tsp or so of red pepper jelly into each indentation, and then set on and gently push in an almond to create a fingernail. Chill the fingers in the fridge for 15 minutes. Place oven rack in the middle position. Preheat the over to 300 degrees F. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until browned and cooked through. The taste of the Red Pepper Jelly, made by The Gourmet Company, is sweet but hot (chili pepper). It is very good. The recipe called for so little that I still have a full bottle of the Red Pepper Jelly in the fridge. I have no idea what else to do with it. I have looked up Red Pepper Jelly recipes on the internet, only to come up with nothing. Even The Gourmet Company website doesn't offer any recipes. I can find tonnes of recipes to make red pepper jelly however. If you are familiar with or after reading the recipe above, have any ideas as to what I could do to use this red pepper jelly, I would very appreciate any advice.
