    makes 15 fingers


  • 120 g Noberasco organic almonds, sliced
  • 100 g wholemeal flour
  • 65 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. salt


  1. Put the flour on a pastry board, make a well in the centre, add the egg yolk, salt and chopped butter.
  2. Knead all the ingredients, mixing well.
  3. Form a ball, wrap it in cling film and store it in the fridge for half an hour.
  4. Cut the dough into pieces and, on a floured surface, stretch them out one at a time to form strings.
  5. Cut each string into 2 or 3 parts forming the witches fingers.
  6. With a knife, make small cuts on the fingers to give the idea of finger bones.
  7. Use sliced almonds for finger nails and bake in a preheated oven at 200 °C for 10-12 minutes.

Chef's tip

Do you want to make these fingers even yummier? Then dust them with Parmesan - or another cheese of your choice - flakes before putting them in the oven!

Serving suggestion

Serve as part of an aperitif buffet or as an appetiser together with sauces, chutneys, marinated vegetables, cold cuts, cheeses or entrées.

Wine selection

Since these breadsticks are neutral, you can choose the wine you prefer, red or white.

Family tip

If you want, you can blend some of the almonds and your 'almond flour' to the rest of the ingredients to make the dough.
