This was a little bit more labor intensive, but most definitely worth the time. I rolled the dough thinly and cut it into triagle shapes (about 2"x2"x2") and spread the filling onto the triagles, and then rolled them up like a crescent roll. They were very pretty and very tasty. I made them for Christmas this year and everybody loved them. Highly reccommended.

5 stars for taste, 2 for instructions. The instructions from the "Waser Kipfels" recipie work for this one though... for example, cooking the walnut/milk mix on medium heat while stirring constantly. I still didn't end up with dough rolled to the right thickness (ended up with a fair bit of filling left over) but I think with some experimenting this is a good recipie. Instead of cresents, I put the filling in the middle of dough squares, then folded up opposite corners into the middle, and pressed all the seams to seal - looks pretty and is easy to do without having filling get into the seams.

These are my favorite cookies! When making them, I roll the dough out into a circle, and cut it like a pizza! I usually get 6 or 8 triangles of dough with each circle.
