Almond Paste Butter Crescent Cookies



1 cup butter softened but not melted
1 cup sugar
1 egg
8 ounces almond paste cut up
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
food coloring
2 cups sliced almonds divided
INSTRUCTIONS:

Garnish use any or all : melted bitter sweet chocolate, melted white chocolate, jimmies, colored sugars, dyed almonds ( for almond ground them in the food processor with a few drops of green or red food coloring and pulse till desired coarseness, I made both colors)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or grease.

Cream the butter and the sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the almond paste, vanilla, egg until well blended. Slowly add the flour, baking powder and salt until smooth.

You can now make crescent shapes, wreaths, candy canes or any other shapes you desire.

Dye the almonds 1 cup of red 1 cup of green. I put mine in the food processor with 3 drops of coloring. Place in a bowl and set aside.

Bake for 13 minutes or until edges begin to get golden brown.

Melt the chocolate and set aside until cookies are cooled completely.

Dip each cookie end in melted chocolate, then in red crushed almonds on one side and green crushed almonds on the other or use colored candies of your choice. Place on wax paper and let dry for at least and hour.
