Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
