1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.


Beat in the egg and extracts.


Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.


Divide dough into fourths.


Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.


Working with one piece of dough at a time, roll into 1-in. balls.


Shape balls into 3-in. x 1/2-in. fingers.


Using the flat tip of a table knife, make an indentation on one end of each for fingernail. With a knife, make three slashes in the middle of each finger for knuckle.


Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
