Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup finely ground almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. In a small bowl, combine the flour, almonds and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. Divide dough into fourths. Roll out each portion into a long rope, about 1/4 in. diameter. Cut into 2-in. lengths. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets; form each into a crescent.
  3. Bake at 325° for 14-16 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes. In a shallow bowl, combine confectioners' sugar and cinnamon; roll warm cookies in sugar mixture. Place on wire racks to cool completely.
