Viennese Crescents are a light, buttery cookie made with almonds and shaped into crescents. Dusted with powdered sugar, they're a beautiful holiday cookie.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Cream butter until it is light and fluffy. Add the confectioners’ sugar, flour, nuts, and vanilla.
Mix thoroughly. With your fingers, shape into crescents about 2 inches long, 1/4 inch wide and thick.
Roll each cookie in confectioners’ sugar. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes, until just slightly golden.
Place on a wire rack to cool and roll in more confectioners’ sugar before serving.
