Ingredients

How to make it

  • Cream the butter and sugar.
  • Add the extracts and the flour and salt.
  • Mix in the nuts until just blended -- do not overbeat. This is a batter that does not like being handled too much.
  • Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in waxed paper, and chill one hour.
  • Take one tsp of the batter and lightly roll in your hands to form a crescent shape. Keep repeating and placing these, with room to spread a bit, on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Keep an eye on them not to burn but they will rise a bit and turn lightly golden. I like using Silpats on my cookie sheets for these.
  • These cookies are delicate so handle with care when removing to cooling racks.
  • When cooled dust with confectioner's sugar.
  • These cookies freeze nicely, if they last that long.
