Almond Crescent Cookies

A Moroccan recipe from The Multicultural Cookbook for Students. This is also called Sesame Cornes de Gazelles. "Moroccan pastries are works of art. They have incorporated the flair of the French with the use of Middle East ingredients, such as honey, almonds, sesame seeds, and dried fruit." Notice how the flour starts with ONE CUP and then you might add more depending upon how sticky it is. The oven time seems a bit long to me. I have not made this but think it sounds good.
