How To Repair Broken Dresser Handle?

Q: I bought this dresser off Craigslist, but one of the handles is broken. Someone tried to fix it with glue, but it didn't hold and the last owners gave up on it. I have the handle, but the broken edge is covered in old, dry wood glue!

I planned on picking the old glue off with an x-acto knife. (And try to not damage the wood)! But how should I reattach the handle? I have some woodworking tools so DIY suggestions are welcome. Thanks!
