- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour shopping list
- 1 teaspoon baking powder shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened shopping list
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar shopping list
- 1 egg shopping list
- 1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract shopping list
- green food coloring shopping list
- sliced almonds shopping list
How to make it
- In a medium bowl, sift the all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium, beat the butter until creamy. Beat in the confectioners' sugar, egg and almond extract. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until a soft dough forms.
- Tint the dough, using a few drops of food coloring. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and chill until just firm, about 45 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 350F. For each cookie, using lightly floured hands, roll tablespoonfuls of the dough into finger shapes. Using a knife, mark knuckle lines across the center of each finger. Lightly flatten the end of each finger. Press sliced almonds on flattened areas for fingernails.
- Place finger shapes on ungreased baking sheets. Bake cookies until they are firm and bottoms begin to turn golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool completely.
