Here's a favorite in my house:
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.
