Just after Christmas, I found a great deal on boxes of Classic Sugar Cookie mix. 25 cents each! I used one of those, with some almonds and powdered sugar to make some delicious treats today.
Almond Crescent Cookies
- 1 box sugar cookie mix
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- Confectioners sugar to decorate
In a stand mixer, blend the cookie mix, butter, eggs, almond extract and almonds until thoroughly mixed.
Carefully shape spoonfuls of dough into a crescent shape and coat with confectioners sugar. Place on a silpat-covered baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and dust with additional confectioners sugar.
They are quite sweet, but deliciously addictive. They don't take long to make, so it won't be too difficult to make a second batch when these go quickly!
