1 cup butter
2/3 cup of icing sugar (extra for rolling finished cookies)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
2 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour
Cream the butter and sugar together in your mixer until smooth. Beat in vanilla, almond extract and the almonds. Then beat in the flour until well mixed. It will look at bit crumbly. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll some of the dough out and cut pieces about 2 inches long. Form them into crescents and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. You will able to make about 3 dozen.
Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on a rack. Then pour some more icing sugar in a cereal sized bowl. Gently roll each cookie in the icing sugar. They are the best cookies around and I guarantee you will enjoy them. They freeze really well too.
