Candlemas Crescent Cakes



1 1/4cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 cup finely ground almonds

3 drops almond extract

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened

1 tablespoon honey

1 egg yolk


In a large mixing bowl, combine the first four ingredients.  Add the butter, honey, egg yolk and mix together well. Cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, and then chill

for 1 to 2 hours in the refrigerator. When ready, pinch off pieces of the dough (about the size of plums) and shape them into crescents. Place the crescents on a well-greased  cookie sheet and bake in a 350-degree preheated oven for

approximately 20 minutes.


The recipe yields about one dozen crescent cakes
