    momaphet's Note:

    This has been a family favorite for many, many, years, I usually make a double batch to ensure having them around for more than a day! The recipe comes from the now defunct Country Cooking magazine in an article on Czechoslovakian cooking. I grind my almonds in my Cuisinart and mix the recipe up in it also, but a mixer will also work fine. (I guessed on the yield, they make a full tray plus).

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300°F.
    2. 2
      In food processor:
    3. 3
      Mix together flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and ground almonds.
    4. 4
      Add in butter, and extracts and pulse until dough comes together.
    5. 5
      In mixer:
    6. 6
      Cream butter and extracts.
    7. 7
      Add in flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and ground almonds.
    8. 8
      Forming crescents:.
    9. 9
      I use a small ice cream scoop, after scooping out a level scoop of dough I cut it in half, press down and shape in to crescent about 1/8-inch thick.
    10. 10
      You can also roll the dough into ropes and cut into about 1 1/2-inch lengths and shape it into a crescent, adjust thickness of crescent to your preference.
    11. 11
      This dough doesn't spread much so you can put them close together. Bake 15 - 20 minutes until just starting to get golden around the edges (I cook mine a little longer because I like them a little crispy, my kids like theirs softer).
    12. 12
      Cool until barely warm, then coat with extra powdered sugar. You may need more than a cup.
    13. 13
      Store in airtight container.

      Excellent, not too sweet cookies. The powdered sugar sprinkled at the end, really takes these to another level. Made for ZWT4 Holiday Challenge.
