I’m surprised these don’t have more reviews! These are really good. I participate in a cookie exchange every year and everyone always hopes I make these again. I have actually rolled them out and used cookie cutters on them too rather than form the dough. I find that works well. Not sure what happened with the 1 star reviewer on here but I imagines they did not include the almonds or did not chop them fine. I chop my almonds in blender or food processor basically until it is like a flour. That makes up a significant part of the dough. Maybe they missed that part.Read More

Followed the directions to a t. 8 minutes into baking I now have a sheet cookie. Somehow I think the butter ingredient is wrong versus the flour amount.Read More

Amazing recipe. I added an extra tsp of almond extract because I love the taste of almonds. I also didn't use a measuring cup for the confectioners sugar amount, I did it by eye which I enjoyed in this cookie. This recipe has to be one of the best recipes I've ever tried and this is the second time I made it and I added just a little bit more of what I like to the cookies. ENJOY!!!!

i made the Almond crescent cookies just like the recipe said and they were a hit.. they brought back pleasant Holiday memeories... i will definitely be making them again thank you so much
very easy to make and best of all it tasted delicious. Love this recipe. Thank you for sharing.
Just made the dough & it's impossible to form , si right now it's in the fridge!!!!
These turned out very tasty. The full recipe made 17 crescent cookies using a cookie scoop. They are a nice sized cookie as they expand quite a bit in the oven. My only change was cutting back the almond extract by half. I used pure almond extract, but still find it too strong to use more than that. For ease, I processed the almonds using my Vitamix machine. I baked them on a parchment lined baking sheet for 21 minutes. ty
so simple and they turned out wonderful. I thought the amount of almond flavor was perfect. these are great if you need a last minute dessert or snack. to get a more uniform dusting of powdered sugar, I put the cookies and sugar in a ziplock and shook them around a bit. they look more like they're from a bakery that way :)
I made these using this recipe for the first time and it’s a keeper. I made a couple minor changes. I’m trying to cut salt so I used unsalted butter and didn’t add the salt. But I made the mistake and bought self rising flour, and I used an extra 1/4 c powdered sugar. They still came out perfect. I doubled the recipe and got about 7 dozen half dollar size cookies. I didn’t shape them into crescents lol.
Followed the instructions but put the dough in the fridge for one hour like I do with all butter based cookies. Delicious. I made a small sized cookie batch that came out crispy and a larger sized cookie batch that are nice and soft.
These are amazing, the only change I made was to toast the almond before chopping them.
Great recipe! I didn’t know how tiny I was supposed to make them so I used a teaspoon size amount of dough to shape my crescents. With a teaspoon amount- I had to adjust the cooking time to only 8-10 mins. Came out perfect. I can’t stop eating them! Next time I will make a double batch!
Same as another review, turned into a sheet cookie. Can’t even tell I made them crescent shapes.proportions of flour to butter is not right. And yes, I used almonds and ground them up in food processor.
not much flavor.
Amazing! Totally loved it! Delicious!
The cookies hold their shape well. Need to add a little more sugar and watch the oven for browning on the bottom. Overall, good flavor.
I am sure I did something wrong. I made them and they taste delicious but they crumbled. Please help me figure out what I did. I even refrigerated the batter before baking them.
Perfect! They do puff a bit in the oven.
These are really so delicious. I needed more then the re ipe called for, so I just doubled the recipe. I did add extra almond extract. Love how these tastes. I served these at Christmas. They definitely were a hit!
Followed the recipe to a T, didn’t stray from it at all and I think like some of the other reviewer’s said but I didn’t notice before, flour to butter ratio is off. When I was forming them I felt like something was wrong, should’ve listened to my instincts. So much for making these for Christmas. Now I’ve got a run out to the store and buy more ingredients.
This recipe only makes 1-1/2 dozen. I followed directions, made sure to sift flour and grated the almonds in the blender. I used cold butter and put the baking pans in freezer for 20 minutes. I also refrigerated the dough for 1/2 hour. Came out great just not enough of them. I suggest doubling recipe if you want more.
