Tiffany's Almond Crescent Cookies
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, or as needed
1Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
2Beat butter and 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
3Mix vanilla extract, almond extract, and salt into butter mixture. Add 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour slowly, beating until just mixed. Fold in almonds; mix briefly until combined.
4Shape dough into tiny crescents and arrange on ungreased baking sheets.
