Delicious with tea, perfect for the holidays, these beautiful crescent cookies are a traditional classic.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract or almond liqueur
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until very light and fluffy. Add almond flour, flour, vanilla and almond extract. Mix together until a slightly crumbly dough forms. Press 3 tablespoons of dough into the palm of your hand, squeeze, then gently place on a parchment-lined Good Cook Baking Sheet, and mold the cookies into crescents.

Bake at 350ºF for 9-12 minutes for a soft cookie. For a slightly crispier cookie, bake 15-20 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar while warm. Allow to cool before serving.
