Why I Love This Recipe

I found these cookies in a Taste of Home Cookbook several years ago and they quickly became a Christmas tradition in my house. As a variation, I "ice" the bottom of the cookie with tempered chocolate.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. ground almonds
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. flour
2 T. cornstarch
2 squares semisweet chocolate
1/2 t. shortening


In a mixing bowl, cream butter, almonds, sugar and vanilla.

Add flour and cornstarch.

Roll into 1 in. balls.

Shape into crescents and place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8 -10 min. or until lightly browned.

Cool completely on a wire rack.

Melt chocolate and shortening in a microwave or double boiler.

Stir until smooth.

Dip one end of each crescent cookie into chocolate.

Cool on waxed paper.

Refrigerate for about 30 min. to firm the chocolate.
