Almond Crescents recipe

Every time I make this people rave about these cookies. I omit the nuts on top and use white chocolate drizzle to make them look more elegant.

What You Need

2
cups  (4 sticks) butter, softened
1
cup  powdered sugar
4
cups  flour
1
cup  ground PLANTERS Almonds
1
pkg.  (4 oz.) BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate, chopped
1/2
cup  finely chopped pistachios

Make It

HEAT oven to 350°F.

MIX butter and sugar in large bowl with wooden spoon until well blended. Gradually add flour, stirring after each addition until well 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.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
