The recipe is circulating all over the Internet and not only. I found it a long time, a long time ago on Food Gallery.
Ingredients for a lot of fingers:
- 225 g butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar * (140g)
- 1 1 egg
- 1 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, or sugar with real vanilla
- 2 and 2/3 glass (250ml) of flour
- 1 flat teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3/4 Glass of blanched almonds (for me the almond flakes, nails are less “hard” for me)
Beat the butter with the sugar on the bright and fluffy, add egg, vanilla extract. Then add the flour and salt with powder. Form dough into a ball, wrap in foil and chill in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes. After this time, remove the cake (It is best to take your part and the rest of the keep in the refrigerator, not got softer) With the dough to do rolls and then form finger, in place of the, where should be the nail press almond. Because the dough in the oven grows strongly, shaped fingers should be the thickness of the little finger.
Bake in preheated oven at 200 ° C for 10 minutes. I I've baked it at 190 ° c for 9 minutes. After this time, remove and cool. Toes should be slightly browned.
