Almond Crescents

COMMENTS:These are the cookies my Grandma made every year around Christmas. I finally tried the recipe on my own this year, with her encouragement. I was so excited to have "the moon cookies" again!

3 cups flour
3 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
6 oz. ground almonds
2 egg yolks
(additional powdered sugar)

Cream butter and flour together. Add remaining ingredients.

Refrigerate dough in a rolled log.

Form dough into crescent shapes; place on cookie sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 12 minutes. While warm, roll in additional powdered sugar.
