Categories: Cookies / Desserts

1/2  Lb  (2 Sticks) Unsalted Butter
2/3  Cup  Sifted Confectioner's Sugar Plus More
    For Rolling
1  Tsp  Vanilla Extract
1/2  Tsp  Almond Extract
1  Cup  Coarsely Chopped Almonds
2 1/3  Cups  Sifted All-Purpose Flour

1. Heat oven to 350° and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Cream together butter and 2/3 cup sugar until fluffy. Beat in extracts, then add almonds. Stir in flour and beat until well mixed. 2. Divide dough in half and roll each half into a log 1 inch in diameter. Cut each log into 3/4-inch pieces, and roll each piece into a cylinder 2 inches long. Place cylinders 1 to 2 inches apart on baking sheets, and form into crescents. 3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. Let crescents cool, then roll in additional sugar.
