I got this recipe from the LA Times. It was submitted by Lois Marx of Los Angeles who says this was one of her grandmother's favorite cookie recipes, which she always made during the holiday season. She's right, these cookies are perfect around the holidays. For a little variety, I like dip half of each cookie in chocolate and roll it in a bowl of slivered almonds, like the German Mandelhornchen.

1 cup butter
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup ground almonds
1 vanilla beans - ground
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
powdered sugar

Beat butter until light and creamy and gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add ground almonds, ground vanilla bean, salt and flour and mix. Shape into 2-inch crescents and place on ungreased parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees until they just begin to lightly brown, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and roll in powdered sugar while still hot.
