Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

#FoodFriday - Almond Crescents

As we get closer and closer to December 25th, my to-do list is growing longer by the day.  One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is baking - and cookies rule in my house!

Here's a favorite in my house:

Almond Crescents 

3/4 Cup butter, room temperature
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 Cups all purpose flour
1/2 Cup almonds, chopped fine
Powdered sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 300.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Beat in almond and vanilla extracts. Gradually blend in the flour. Fold in the almonds. Dough will be stiff!

Pinch off walnut sized pieces, roll between your fingers and form into a crescent shape. Place 1 1/2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until lightly colored. Roll in powdered sugar and cool on wire racks.


What's a favorite cookie in your house this time of year?
