Remove from fridge and roll into balls (1 tablespoon each), with your palms roll them into thin 'cigar shapes. Pinch slightly towards each end to give the appearance on a knuckle, then using a knife cut 3 small slits on top of that knuckle. Press an almond at the tip of each 'finger' with pointy end facing out. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until light golden. Have a CREEEPY Halloween!
