INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)
• 1/3 cup finely ground almonds 45g
• 1 drop almond extract
• 1/3 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour 50g
• 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar 20g
• 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons butter, softened 40g
• 1/3 egg yolk

DIRECTIONS
This recipe’s Ingredients were scaled to yield a new amount. The directions below still refer to the original recipe yield of 1 1/2 dozen.
1. Combine almonds, almond extract, flour, and sugar until thoroughly mixed. Work in butter and egg yolk with hands; until well blended. Chill the dough for one hour.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
3. Pinch off pieces of dough about the size of your thumb and shape into crescents. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake for about 16 minutes.
Conclusion
I seem to be making a lot of mistakes recently. I put 2x more sugar than I was supposed to, so I had to increase the flour and the grounded almonds. What I ended up with was still 1.5x more sugar. The cookies turned out great however. The sugar content was just about right, and it had a crustic texture that I very much liked. The texture really is so much better than the texture of cookies which just use plain flour. It tastes like a cookie with a complex texture and very mild almond flavor.
