Almond Crescents

I love almond crescents, but it took me trying a few times till I got the recipe right, either the dough was too dry or not easy to shape. I finally got it right and am sharing with you just in time….as it is cookie season!:)

What you will need:

  • 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Crisco shortening
  • 5 tbsp plain yogurt
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 2 1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 cup of ground almonds
  • Icing/powder sugar for sprinkling

Cream butter, shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy, add vanilla.
Sift flour with baking soda and salt.

Add the flour and ground almonds to the butter, mix till combined. Will be dry and crumbly, add to it 5 tbsp yogurt mix till forms dough.
Roll dough into small balls, about an inch in diameter, then shape into a crescent. Place onto parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until a light golden brown.
Dust with icing sugar and enjoy!
