  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together using an electric mixer until fluffy. Blend in vanilla extract and salt. Mix in flour and ground pecans. Shape about 1 tablespoon of dough into a finger, about 3 inches long and 3/4 inch wide. Repeat with remaining dough to form about 50 fingers total.
  3. Place fingers 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet; they will expand a little while baking. Stick an almond 'nail' onto the end of each finger. Lightly score some 'knuckles' into the centers using a knife.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until set and very lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Let cool.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute almond extract for the vanilla if you prefer.
  • Ground almonds can be substituted for the pecans.
