  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in chopped peanuts and flour until well blended. Work with half of dough at a time; refrigerate remaining dough until needed.
  • 2
    Place sugar in shallow dish. For each cookie, shape dough into 1-inch ball, then shape ball into 1 1/2-inch-long egg shape. Roll in sugar to coat. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Immediately insert string candy piece in 1 end of each cookie for tail. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • 4
    On each cookie, use decorating gel to attach 2 cinnamon candies for eyes and 1 chocolate chip for nose. With sharp knife, make 2 small slits in each cookie above eyes; insert almond slices for ears. Store in tightly covered container.

Expert Tips

  • If desired, purchase white decorator icing in an aerosol can instead of the tube decorating gel to attach the eyes. Store these cookies loosely covered.
