  • Add vanilla extract and knead lightly. Roll out on floured board 1/4 inch thick.

  • Cut into crescent shapes using a whiskey glass coated with flour.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) until bottoms are lightly browned. While hot, roll in confectioner's sugar, (I usually use a brown bag or baggie bag to roll the cookies in with the powdered sugar).

My Nana made these every year and entire family loves them!!! She gave me the recipe a few years ago and now I make them too. All of my friends and coworkers ask me to make these during the holidays. I cannot tell you how yummy these are.. you NEED to make them! One thing I have changed is to just make them into balls because shaping them into crescents is a huge pain in the... and it takes WAY too long. Read More

I accidentally used regular white sugar instead of confectioners but they turned out well. They had a texture very similar to pecan sandies. I took them to the in-laws for Christmas and it reminded them of a recipe from their childhood. Great inexpensive recipe. Read More
