Makes about 50 little cookies that are great for holiday gift giving.
1 stick vegan margarine
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar, plus additional for coating
2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup ground almonds (other nuts ok)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cream butter, add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Shape with fingers into crescents. (Kid friendly for other shapes or rolling out too.)
Roll in extra confectioner’s sugar and bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 12 to 15 minutes.
Take out when just starting to brown. Cool, then roll in more confectioner’s sugar before serving.
