Makes 24 to 30 cookies
1 cup (227 grams) of unsalted, softened butter
1/3 cup (67 grams) white sugar
1 2/3 (210 grams) cups all-purpose white flour
2/3 (100 grams) cups almond meal
¼ tsp. salt
Confectioner’s sugar

Cream the butter and the sugar for about three minutes until it is fluffy.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour with the almond meal and the salt. Add it to the butter and mix it in. Do not over beat.
Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 C) and line your cookies sheets with parchment paper or silicon mats.

Scoop out about a TBS of dough and form a log. Bend it to form a crescent moon shape and place it in the cookie sheet. These will not spread so you do not need to separate them too much. Bake them for about 8 to 9 minutes until they start to lightly brown.

Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the sheets for about 5 minutes. They will continue to be soft but will harden as they cool. Transfer them to a cooling rack.

Place the confectioner’s sugar in a sieve and generously sprinkle over the cookies. Keep the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.
