Kick off the holiday baking season with a popular Italian Halloween cookie. These are seriously delicious cookies, in spite of looking like severed witches fingers. The dough is a versatile cookie recipe-I use the same dough for thumbprint cookies for Christmas filling the centers with chocolate ganache or jam.

Ingredients

3 cups blanched almonds, divided

4 oz. cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

3/4 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp. almond extract

1/4 tsp. salt

1-1/2 cups flour

red food coloring or red cake decorating gel

Directions

Preheat oven to 325ºF.

Reserve 60 nuts for later use; process remaining nuts in food processor until finely ground. Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar, extract and salt in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in ground nuts. (Dough will be stiff.)

Roll dough into 60 three inch fingers, using 1 Tbsp. dough for each. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. With a cotton swab dab a thin layer of red coloring on the tip of each finger. Press 1 of the reserved nuts into red dough in 1 end of each 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.
