Number of Servings: 12


    1 1/4 cups 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 and egg yolk and mix together well. Cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, and then chill for 1 1/2 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 325-degree preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes. (This recipe yields about one dozen Candlemas Crescent Cakes.)
