Directions

  1. Mix together shortening, butter and almonds. Sift in flour and salt. Add vanilla.
  2. Chill dough until firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).
  4. Roll dough with hands into 3 inch lengths, pencil thick. Form into crescents on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until just slightly brown -- about 16 minutes. Cool on pan
  5. While still slightly warm, carefully dip in a mixture of confectioner's sugar and cinnamon. These are extremely fragile cookies -- handle with care!
