    They were not the classic buttery almond crescents, but they certainly tasted good!

    I made these for a friend who can’t find the Salerno Almond Crescents anymore and she said they were amazing! Absolutely melt in your mouth. I think the key was take out at 11 min and roll immediately in powdered sugar

    i added a little more (under 1/4 cup) of flour and a little less of the almond flavoring. I used slivered almonds. They were a hit this past Thanksgiving.

    There's something wrong with this sentence 'shape a long in the middle is thicker than both ends.' It doesn't make sense .
