1 1/4 cups
3/4 cup
1/4 tsp
1 1/2 cups


Prep: 15 mins | Cook: 20 mins
  • 1

    Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 325ºF. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

  • 2

    Reserve 60 almond slices to garnish cookies, then pulse remaining almonds in a food processor until finely ground.

  • 3

    Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, almond extract and salt in large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in ground almonds. Dough will be stiff.

  • 4

    Roll 1 tbsp portions of dough into 3-inch "fingers", then place 2 inches apart on prepared sheets. Press an almond slice into the end of each dough finger to form the fingernail. Use a sharp knife to make 3 crosswise slits on the top of each finger to form the knuckles.

  • 5

    Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool 3 minutes on baking sheet, then carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
