Almond Crescents Recipe

Not only does the dough for these crescents mix up in the bread machine, but you can vary the amount of almonds in the filling and do the baking a day early. the recipe's from my daughter-in-law.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1/2 cup warm whole milk (70° to 80°)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups plus 2 tablespoons bread flour
  • 2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first eight ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed).
  • 2. When the cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half; roll each portion into a 12-in. circle. Combine the butter and almond extract; brush over the dough. Cut each circle into 12 wedges; sprinkle with almonds. Roll up each wedge from the wide end.
