The powdered sugar on these almond crescents is our kind of snow! Just a nice, decorative coating of the white stuff, thanks.

I made 60 cookies on Sunday and Monday sent the last 7 to work with him. He shared with 3 guys at work and called and ask me to make them some more. They ALL loved them. They melt in your mouth and not to sweet. Easy to make too. I rolled mine then to the fridge then as I cooked them rolled them like a snake and shaped them. presto.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good recipe. Pretty good recipe. My son liked it so it's a keeper. Not too sweet. Somewhat bland. I mixed all in my food processor and the result was great. Very easy to make. I rolled the dough between my palms to form the crescent shape. These cookies to do not spread much so you can pile quite a few on a cookie sheet. I only yielded about 4 dozen cookies rather than the 5 dozen as stated.

I added another 1/2 tsp of almond extract to these the 2nd time I made them and it added a lot of flavor. We liked them alot, and I made the recipe even easier, by just dropping them with a spoon. (I thought the dough was a little too soft to roll into a ball.)

One of five cookie recipes I made for the holiday season, I went back to make this recipe three times (and the others only once). The cream cheese gives the cookie a surprisingly rich flavor, reminiscent of shortbread. Perfect match for a cup of tea!
