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.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

These are so yummy. I think I may have cooked them a bit too long as they flattened out a bit more than I thought they would but they still taste fantastic! Read More

Really great. I made double quantity and they disappeared in minutes. Everybody loved them! I made them with wholemeal flour instead of plain but they still came out great. Read More
