You’ll Need

  • 1 cup (250 mL) butter, softened
  • 1 cup (250 mL) icing sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) almond extract
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) vanilla
  • 2 ¾ cups (675 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) baking powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) salt
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) whole blanched almonds
  • Red decorator gel (or raspberry jam)
  • 1 tsp green food colouring (optional)

    In a large bowl, combine butter, egg, sugar, vanilla and almond extract and blend with an electric mixer.
  • 2
    Gradually add the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 3
    Keep covered in the fridge for up to 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Preheat oven to 325&#176;F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • 5
    Divide the dough into four quarters. Take one quarter out at a time, leaving the remaining dough in the fridge until you&#8217;re ready to use it.
  • 6
    Take a heaping teaspoon of dough and roll into the shape of a finger.
  • 7
    Press an almond firmly on one end to create the fingernail. Squeeze gently below the bottom of the &#8216;nail&#8217; and again close to the bottom to create a &#8216;knuckle&#8217; in between.
  • 8
    Bake your fingers for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Pull out and let cool for a few minutes.
  • 9
    Gently lift off the almond &#8216;fingernail&#8217; from its bed and place some red decorating gel in the cavity. Press the almond back on the nail bed, letting the gel subtly ooze out around it. Let cool.
