  Unsalted butter 6 Ounce, softened (1 1/2 Stick)
  Powdered sugar 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Half and half 1 Tablespoon
  Almond extract 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)

1. In a medium bowl, beat butter and 1 cup powdered sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in half-and-half, almond extract, and salt until well blended.
2. Add flour to butter-sugar mixture and blend well. Stir in almonds. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour until firm.
3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Shape dough by teaspoonfuls into crescents, each about 1 1/2 inches long, and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
