Almond Crescents

September 16, 2014, 12:00 am

Mandel-Halbmonde (Almond Crescents)

Makes about 30 cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup natural cane sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2 1/4 cups unbleached flour
1 cup almond meal
confectioner’s sugar or 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in extracts. Mix in flour and almonds.
  2. Using about 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie, shape into logs and bend into crescent shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake 15-18 minutes until light brown.
  3. While warm, roll crescents in confectioners' sugar or drizzle with melted chocolate. Cool on racks and store in a tightly sealed container. You can also dip the ends in melted chocolate. Let cool on a wax paper-covered plate until chocolate is hard.

To melt chocolate: place chocolate chips in a small, heavy bottomed sauce pan over the lowest heat setting. Heat until melted, stirring.
