    HollyGolightly's Note:

    from Kraft Food and Family 2009. My kids love to make and eat these. These are not a super sweet cookie... more of an almond shortbread. Tasty and creepy! They take about 25 minutes to bake at 325 in my oven.

      My daughter and I made these together. Very easy to make and lots of fun. I used brown sugar instead of white and raw almonds.

      Great recipe...but the nails kept falling off! Anyone have any solutions for this? Other than that, a fun and easy Halloween treat!

      Thank you for sharing this wonderful easy to make cookie. I used brown sugar instead of powered sugar as another reviewer did. However I did notice when using brown sugar your dough is not white and unless you plan to add food coloring to make them green, I'm not sure using brown sugar is the way to go. I was planning to add green food coloring anyway so it did not make a difference to me. I brought them to a Halloween dance and everyone could tell they were witches fingers and loved the taste. I personally was not crazy about the cream cheese taste, but I gave the recipe five stars because I was easily out voted by the majority. Thanks again for sharing something fun and easy to make for Halloween.
