DIRECTIONS

  • Cream the butter and the 2/3 cup confectioner's sugar until fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and almond extracts, then add the almonds. Stir in the flour and beat until well mixed.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Divide the dough in half into a roll one inch in diameter. Cut each roll into 3/4 inch slices, roll each slice into a cylinder 2 inches long, place 1 to 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and form into a crescent shape.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool, then roll in confectioner's sugar until coated.
