Description

This recipe is known in America as almond crescents. I converted the measurements and translated this recipe that has been in my family for generations. It's a German Christmas cookie.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • ¾ cup ground almonds
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup vanilla sugar
  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Combine flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and ground almonds. Cut in butter with pastry blender, then quickly knead into a dough.
  3. 3. Shape dough into logs and cut off 1/2-inch pieces. Shape each piece into a crescent and place on prepared baking sheet.
  4. 4. Bake in preheated oven until edges are golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 1 minute and carefully roll in vanilla sugar mixture.
