Almond Crescent Cookies


Less than two weeks until Christmas!! If you’re still looking for another cookie recipe to round out your cookie menu, consider this one! I had never made crescent cookies before, and they are one of Aaron’s favorites. I love almonds and these have a lovely almond flavor from the extract and ground nuts.

Have a great week-before-Christmas! 🙂

Almond Crescent Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 cup ground almonds (ground in a food processor)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add extracts and mix until combined. Gradually add the flour and then the ground almonds.
  2. Form into a tablespoon sized ball, then form into a crescent shape.
  3. Bake on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cookies begin to very slightly golden.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when you remove them from the oven.

Makes 28-30 cookies.
