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.
- 1 1/4 cups (about 1/3 tub) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Tub Dough, slightly softened
- 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 325º F.
COMBINE cookie dough and flour in medium mixing bowl. Stir almonds and almond extract into cookie dough. Roll dough into 18, 1 1/4-inch balls; shape each ball into a 1 1/2-inch crescent. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 18 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.

Used my coupon and made these cookies. They are yummy. The taste of almond is great.
What an easy and elegant looking cookie.
How easy was that
This recipe was so easy and delious that I'm going to make these a lot, the kids and guest loved them!!!
That sounds really delicious, I will have to try that out~ big fan of Almonds
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
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!!
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.
great tase and fast
I have a recipe to make these cookies from scatch.
Making them with the sugur cookie dought is so much easier and the taste just as great. My family could't tell the differance.
I love chocolate so I dipped in chocolate and put extra almonds over as well.
Should have made more
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 am a cookie lover and these were excellent. took them to work and they lasted about 3 min. when are you going to make them again was all i heard.they were a huge sucess
One of the best and easiest recipes I've ever used. The cookies were moist and melt in you mouth taste. My family wants them every holiday.
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.
For some reason when I first saw the title of this recipe I thought "oh, no! This is going to be tough!" I was pleasantly surprised. The cookies were so easy to make and soooo good! I've found another keeper at your site!
Yummy variation of my kids favorite Christmas cookie(vanilla kippfil). Great with coffee.
Easier to make than grinding all the nuts!!
