Almond Crescent Cookies

This simple recipe for yummy almond crescent cookies is made with healthy ingredients yet tastes decadent and buttery tasting. Enjoy as a dessert, snack, or even a breakfast cookie.

Here’s a recipe that I made the other night.

There was an opened bag of almond flour and I wanted to use up the last of it before opening a new bag.

So, I came up with this recipe for almond crescent cookies and used the last half cup of almond flour that was in the bag. 

I was so happy the way these turned out.

These cookies are almost like a biscotti but so much easier and faster to make.

They are gluten free as well.

I’m not kidding when I say this, they were gone in 20 minutes after they cooled.

My kids and husband went crazy for them and I have to admit, so did I. 
Check out how simple and easy the recipe is. Then, bake a batch.
These cookies are so good!
