Recipe by momaphet
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • In food processor:
  • Mix together flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and ground almonds.
  • Add in butter, and extracts and pulse until dough comes together.
  • In mixer:
  • Cream butter and extracts.
  • Add in flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and ground almonds.
  • Forming crescents:
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Cool until barely warm, then coat with extra powdered sugar. You may need more than a cup.
  • Store in airtight container.
