Almond Crescent Cookies
These delicious melt-in-your-mouth cookies are a popular holiday treat in Germany and Austria. They are simple to make and always a crowd pleaser.
1. Mix the softened butter and the sugar together. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and mix.
2. Add the flour, almonds and mix well.
3. Take generous scoops of the dough and roll it into a small ball, about an inch in size, and then form into a crescent shape. Place onto parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 15-20 minutes or until they turn a light golden brown.
For a finishing touch, dust with powdered sugar.
