This recipe is from my husband’s family and is German. They are a crescent shaped nut cookie that is rolled in cinnamon sugar, but can also be rolled in powdered sugar. They are very similar to the Mexican Wedding cookie. Very easy and fast to make. I roll the cookies into 1″ or so balls or a sausage shape and then form them into a crescent shape around my finger.
4 oz. butter, softened
4 T. powdered sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup ground nuts-pecans, walnuts or almonds
1/2 t. vanilla
cinnamon sugar to roll cookies in while hot
Preheat oven to 350. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla. Add flour and nuts and roll in to rounds and then crescent shape. Bake 20 minutes. Makes 15 walnut size cookies
