Almond Crescents are an easy holiday treat when you start with our refrigerated tub dough and then shape the dough into crescents filled with sliced almonds and a little touch of almond extract for that extra special sophisticated flavor. The crescents can also be dipped in melted chocolate for a different look.

    I loved these and they were so easy. I already had my cookie dough to make my cutout cookies, so I just pulled out a portions and added the almond extract. My kids loved them for something different

    So Easy

    Martha Morgan from New Castle, DE

    These were so good but when my sister called and asked for the recipe I just laughed and told her my secret. These will definitely be added to my core cookies that I make.

    Yummy, Nom, Nom, Nom!!

    Pamela Holcomb from Frederick, MD

    This cookie is very good. I love the flavor of almond and the crunch of the almond nut is an added bonus. I did not dip in melted chocolate, but did dust with confectioners sugar. It is so easy to make this cookie using the Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Tub Dough. I will definitely make this again.

    Should have made more

    Rachel Ingham from Hilton, NY

    I made these cookies for work, just to try the recipe. I dipped end in semi-sweet chocolate, and then drizzled the entire cookie in white choclate. Co-workers didn't believe that they were homemade, said they were best cookies they ever had! I'll be making more for Christmas for sure!

    I have made a crescent cookie recipe that my mother gave to me. It is a great recipe and is a very easy cookie to make. I have put nuts in my recipe, but I am going to put almonds next time that sounds really tasteful. Thank you. This is a delightful recipe.
