Cook Time 30 mins
225 g butter, softened
225 g sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
620g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
60 whole blanched almonds
Preheat the oven to 160ºC/Gas 3.
In a large mixing bowl beat together the butter, sugar, egg, almond extract and vanilla extract until well mixed.
Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and mix into the butter mixture, blending well.
Wrap the cookie dough in cling film and rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Working with one quarter of the dough at a time (and keeping the remainder refrigerated) roll heaped teaspoons of the dough into narrow finger shapes.
Press an almond firmly into the end of each cookie dough finger shape for a finger nail. Squeeze in the centre of the cookie to form a knuckle shape and cut slashes for lines.
