very quick and easy to make and tastes great; i used sliced almonds instead of ground almonds for time's sake and it turned out fine

I consider myself a good baker and based on the positive reviews tried this recipie. It was the worse that I have ever made. The dough was too stiff to stay together so I had to add an egg. I also added extra almond extract as advised by the previous raters. I have made almond crescents before and I will go back to my old recipie which was great. This one did not work for me at all.

I think it needs more Almond extract and probabl only about 2 cups of sugar.
