To make this Almond Crescents recipe, beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in almond extract and almond filling until blended.

Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into small tapered crescents about 21/2 inches apart. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks 1 minute. Remove Almond Crescents from baking sheets and cool on racks. Dust or dredge with confectioners sugar while cookies are still warm. Cool the Almond Crescents completely.
