O, Sai Candre’, Jana of Reflection, Intuition and Purity, be with us.
For both the Rite of Veneraton, we may offer bread, honey cakes or almond crescent cookies, while for the Great Liturgy, fresh bread is used.
Here is a recipe that may be used for the RoV. I am hoping to add a recipe for honey cakes in the near future.
Almond Crescent Cookies, a recipe shared by ArchMatrona Ghrian
1 cup softened butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 3/4 cups flour
3/4 cup finely chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cream butter and gradually beat in 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar. Add the almond and vanilla extracts, the flour, almonds and blend well. Chill for about three hours. Bring to room temp and shape dough into crescent shaped cookies. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Then combine 1 cup confectioner’s sugar with 1 teaspoon vanilla. Roll warm cookies in sugar mixture.
