Why I Love This Recipe
I love making these cookies- they are light and easy!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
3/4 cup confectioners sugar, plus 1/3 cup, for rolling
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups finely ground blanched almonds
5 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Cream butter in a bowl. Gradually add confectioners sugar and salt. Beat until light and fluffy.
Add almonds and vanilla. Blend in flour gradually and mix well.
Shape into crescents using about 1 teaspoon for each cookie. Place on ungreased cookie sheets, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Do not brown.
Cool slightly, then roll in the extra confectioners' sugar.
