Almond Crescent Cookies
Simple almond flour crescent cookies -- each cookie only has about 60 calories and 2 grams of sugar plus they’re gluten-free and easily made vegan!
- 1 cup finely ground almond flour
- 3 Tablespoons softened organic butter ghee or vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
- 5-6 Tablespoons organic confectioners’ sugar divided
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grab an ungreased baking stone.
Mix almond flour, softened butter, 3 Tablespoons confectioner’s sugar, vanilla and salt in a small bowl until a cohesive dough forms. It will seem a little dry at first, but just keep mixing. Once combined, mix in chopped pecans. You can use your hands to help mix the pecans in if needed.
Roll tablespoons of the dough into a small log and then shape into a crescent shape. Arrange the crescents about 1 inch apart on the sheet as they will spread a bit. Bake the cookies for 20 minutes or until they start to turn light golden brown on top.
Remove from the oven and let cool on the pan for about 5 minutes. Transfer them to a rack to cool 10 minutes more. Place 2-3 Tablespoons confectioners’ sugar in a shallow bowl and roll each cookie until coated. Let cookies cool and enjoy.
Store any leftover cookies in the fridge. I’ve found that this helps the cookies keep a crisp texture and ensures that the powdered sugar doesn’t soak into the cookies.
