- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
- 1/2 teaspoon shortening
step 1: In a mixing bowl, cream butter, almonds, sugar and vanilla; add flour and cornstarch. Roll into 1-in. balls; shape into crescents and place on greased baking sheets.
step 2: Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.
