Original recipe yields 30 to 40

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and chopped pecans. Stir in the margarine and vanilla until a dough forms. Knead by hand for a few turns.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into triangles, and roll from the square end up to the point. Bend into a crescent shape, place on an unprepared cookie sheet, and bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar for decoration.

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.
