  • 1/2 Lb or 2 Cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Cup Raw Almonds, slivered or whole blanched


  • Place the first 3 ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine (dough may be a bit crumbly, but it will stick together).
  • Take a piece of dough and mold into a “finger” shape. Then place 1 slice of almond on the top of the “finger tip” for the “nail”. Press almonds down well into fingers to make sure they stay.
  • Refrigerate fingers for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Place fingers on a parchment paper or Silpat-lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Let fingers cool on sheet for 2 minutes before removing.
  • Serve.
