Aunt Pat's Almond Crescents

This cookie is a Christmas favourite. I asked for the recipe and got this response from my sister-in-law.

Hey Kinzie Family:

Wishing you all a very happy Christmas, a prosperous New Year and all the best.

Aunt Ruth,  here is the recipe for the almond cookies:  (I remembered!!!)

2 cups flour
1 cup of butter
2 tsp. of vanilla
1/4 - 1/2 cup of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of water
1/2 cup of ground almonds

cream butter, vanilla and icing sugar, add water, flour and almonds.  Mix well.  Make into 1/2 moons and bake for 15 minutes at 325F.  Roll in icing sugar while still warm.  Enjoy.

Don't forget this is a basic recipe, sometimes you have to try it a couple of times to get it the way you like it.

Love Aunt Pat
