Almond Crescent Cookies

  • 1 1/2 cup almond meal/flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 5 Tbs non-dairy or dairy butter, softened
  • Powdered sugar for dusting


  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 325ºF and preparing a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick liner.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and non-dairy butter.
  3. Then, mix in the salt, cornstarch, and almond extract. Combine until smooth.
  4. Finally, mix in the almond meal until the dough is formed. It should be sticky and thick enough to form the cookies.
  5. Measure about 2 tsp worth of dough and form crescent shapes. Line the cookies on the baking sheet an equal distance apart. You may also flatten the cookies once on the sheet.
  6. Place the cookies in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the bottom edge.
  7. Allow the cookies to cool before rolling and dusting in powdered sugar.
  8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days.
