This is a Polish cookie my aunt used to make as a Thanksgiving holiday treat. Although I'm not Polish, I make them too, and serve them on a cold winter's night with hot coffee or tea.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup chopped blanched almonds

  • 1 ⅔ cups all-purpose flour

  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla, and almonds; mix a few seconds until well incorporated. Stir in the flour until a dough forms.

  3. Roll the dough into a rope 3/4-inch thick. Cut the rope into 3-inch long pieces. Shape the cookies by rolling each piece back and forth while pressing down gently with two fingers on each end until the piece is about 5-inches long. The dough piece should be plump in the center, and thinner on it's ends. Repeat with remaining cookies.

  4. Place the cookies onto a cookie sheet, bending the ends toward each other to form a crescent 'C' shape. Bake in preheated oven until the edges have turned golden brown, about 20 minutes. Dust immediately with powdered sugar, then cool completely on a wire rack.
