Vanilla Crescent Cookies
For the cookies: In a bowl, stir the flour with the sugar, butter and almonds. Knead into a smooth dough. Divide into portions, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Cut each portion into equal-sized pieces and shape into crescents.
Place the crescents on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 175°C (approximately 350°F) oven on the second shelf from the bottom until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
For dusting: Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool slightly. While still warm, dust with the powdered sugar.
