Beat the butter, powdered sugar, egg, and almond flavouring until creamy.
Sift and add the dry ingredients.
Blend to make a soft dough.
Roll into a fingers (They will rise when baked so make them smaller than you'd like the finished finger to be.)
Make a dent for the almonds and lay the almond in to look like a fingernail.
Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and remove almond.
Put a bit of red gel in the nail bed and press the almond back into the finger.
