Top Review by Annie Dangerous

These just weren't very good in my opinion. The almond extract adds too "fake" a flavor. I've tried other almond crescent recipes that relied on just almonds for the flavor and they seemed to have a much better and more natural taste.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat together butter and 1/2 cup of the confectioners' sugar in bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in almond extract.
  2. On low speed, beat in flour and nuts.
  3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, 2 hours.
  4. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Pinch off pieces of dough in heaping teaspoonfuls.
  5. Roll into logs and taper ends; bending into crescents.
  6. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake in 325 degree oven for 16 to 18 minutes, until lightly browned.
  7. Remove cookies to wire rack. While warm, dust with a generous layer of remaining confectioners' sugar.
  8. Cool completely then sprinkle again with any remaining confectioners' sugar.
