Crisp, delicate almond cookies. A Christmas Favorite!

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Mix together shortening, butter and almonds. Sift in flour and salt. Add vanilla.
  • Chill dough until firm.
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).
  • Roll dough with hands into 3 inch lengths, pencil thick. Form into crescents on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until just slightly brown -- about 16 minutes. Cool on pan
