Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325ºF.
Reserve 40 nuts for later use; process remaining nuts in food processor until finely ground. Beat next 5 ingredients in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in ground nuts. (Dough will be stiff.)
Roll dough into 40 (3-inch) "fingers," using 1 Tbsp. dough for each. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Press 1 reserved nut into end of each dough finger for the fingernail. Use sharp knife to make 3 crosswise slits in top of each finger for the knuckles.
Bake 15 to 20 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 3 min. on baking sheet; carefully transfer to wire racks. Cool completely.
This kid-friendly cookie makes the perfect spooky treat for a special occasion.
Brush nut on each cookie with red food coloring before baking.
