Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- If using butter it must be cold. Mix butter with flour until it resembles fine crumbs. Add white sugar, nuts, and salt. Mix well, adding ice water till you make stiff dough.
- 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. ..." See moreI 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. "
