There are certain foods that bring back wonderful childhood memories and these certainly do just that. My Austrian grandmother "Oma" made these for us every Christmas. I have continued with the tradition and can't imagine a Christmas without them. The only change I make is that once the cookies are out of the oven I dip them into granulated sugar as opposed to confectioners. Confectioners sugar tends to yellow and eventually disappears into the cookie. Try these they're wonderful. Thanks Deana!
cookies turned out delicious but not due to the recipe...dough was not the correct texture to roll so I had to form them into crecents in my hand also a few inconsistencies ie:margerine vs butter. I always use butter and they were yummy just not a recipe for a novice baker to use.
Very nice and very easy cookie to make. I had to add a little more water then mentioned. Next time I will make a double batch. This is the first time in my life that I baked and they turned out great. I used oil to make the dough easier to roll.
These turned out GREAT! I did substitute walnuts for pecans and I used 2 cups flour and 1 and a half cups nuts. I thought handling them would make them tough but they are crisp and light and delicious!
Like others I had hard time rolling them out so I just shaped them in my hands and instead of adding just one type of nuts I added almonds and walnuts as well with a pinch of salt. My husband brought these to his office and they were all asking for more. His parents made a special request to me tonight: they are having a guest over and they'd like me to bake me these cookies.
As eveyone mentions I remember these from being a kid. They are my all time favorite. really don't know why I don't make them more often. I tried the powdered sugar and granular as suggested they all turned out great. They don't last long.
My friend makes these cookies and I covet them each Christmas so this year I went in search of a recipe to duplicate. I came across this one and another on this site (Pecan Crescents). So many recipes come down to personal preference but I must say this Crescent Cookies recipes paled in comparison to the other. The most notable difference was 2.5 cups flour here vs 2 cups flour 1/2 cup powdered sugar blended in on the other recipe. Having the sugar IN the dough really makes a big difference in texture and sweetness and I much prefer the other version. This one had drier dough that was harder to keep together while rolling and nearly every cookie broke when I gently tossed in the powdered sugar. If you're a fan of these but this version also isn't quite right for your tastes try the "Pecan Crescents."
