Success at last!!
Yep, I finally could put my finger on the problem. No pun intended!
The secret? Wrap the dough with plastic film and chill for at least 2 hours before shaping into fingers. Chill the shaped dough again for another 2 hours before popping them into the oven.
Now they do look like fingers, don't they?
