5 Ingredient Butter Crescents

From Grandmom’s Secret Stash…

Grandmom always liked one bowl easy clean-up and keeping it simple – nice when it tastes good too.

1 stick butter (Earth Balance will let you feel virtuous); 1/2 cup powdered sugar; 1/2 tsp almond extract; 1 cup flour; 1/2 cup chopped nuts (almonds are good but walnuts work if that’s what you have on hand).

Mix all together. (Be sure the butter is soft). Shape into small crescents, pinching the ends. Arrange on ungreased cookie sheet (easier to clean up if you use foil).

Bake about 15 minutes until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack and store in airtight container (unless you eat them first).
