How to make it

  • I know this is going to sound strange and unconventional but follow the steps as is.
  • Mix flour and almonds or butter and ¾ cup of sugar in a deep mixing bowl. It will form a crumby mixture.
  • Add the room temp butter to flour mixture and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add egg yolks and vanilla.
  • Mix all by hand and quickly so it doesn't lose its consistency and start melting into a goo. It should be thick and creamy
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough set in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  • When set it should not stick to your fingers as it did before.
  • Form into small crescents by taking small amount of dough into the palm of your hand and rolling into a cigar shape and then bring in the ends to make a C. Put on baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until just very slightly browned.
  • Sift remaining sugar over cookies as soon as they come out of the oven while hot so the powder sticks. Let cool.
  • Enjoy!
