These cookies are another favorite in my family. My mom got this recipe from a coworker of hers. My mom loves these Almond Crescent Cookies. She says it’s delicious, addictive, and dangerous. The reason why it’s dangerous is because they are so small, it’s easy just to grab a few and pop them in your mouth. And before you know it you’ve finished off the entire bowl. To make these cookies here is what you will need.
2 sticks softened butter
1/2 cup powder sugar
1 Tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 cups grinded almonds (from food processor)
In a food processor grind almonds. After grinding, almonds should measure to 2 cups.
In a mixing bowl add butter, powder sugar, vanilla extract, flour, and grinded almonds.
Mix until well combined.
Start by shaping the dough into a small half-moon crescent shape. Almost looking like a cashew.
If you do not have the patience to form the dough into crescents, you can make the cookies round (it’s much easier). Grab a small portion of the dough with your hands, roll into a ball, then gently press to flatten the cookie.
Continue until all the dough has been used.
Bake cookies at 325 for 15 to 20 minutes.
When cookies are finished baking, take out of the oven.
While cookies are still warm, put cookies into a bowl of powder sugar.
And with a fork toss cookies around in the powder sugar until well coated.
Continue doing that until all the cookies have been coated.
Store the cookies in a large bowl with some extra powder in it and cover with foil.
