These Almond Crescents were already scrumptious, but we couldn't leave well enough alone. So we dipped them in chocolate and pistachios!

Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Heat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix butter and sugar in large bowl with wooden spoon until blended. Gradually add flour, stirring after each addition until blended. Stir in nuts.
  • Shape into 2-inch crescents, using 1 Tbsp. dough for each. Place, 2 inches apart, on parchment- or foil-covered baking sheets.
  • Bake 12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 2 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Melt chocolate as directed on package. Dip one end of each cookie in chocolate; top with nuts. Return to wire racks; let stand until chocolate is firm.

Variation

For variety, dust the cookies with powdered sugar instead of dipping them in the melted chocolate. Be sure to coat the cookies while they are still warm to ensure an even coating of the sugar.

I used the left-over crushed almonds from the dough to dip the chocolate side in, instead of the pistacios. I personally did not like these cookies, they smelled like play dough! But, I had made them for a Christmas party and everyone loved them. I brought home an empty tin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were YUMMY! These were YUMMY!!!! I made them for Christmas and they were a great addition to the other cookies I usually make. I will defenity make them again! The only thing is I used too much dough when shaping the crescents so they came out HUGE!! But they still tasted great!

Good change of pace (especially when making sweets for holiday gift baskets) but I found the flavor of the crescents a little bland. Also, I tried and tried but couldn't get them to look as nice as they did here so the presentation was lacking.
