Walnut Crescents

Mom used to make these every year at Christmas. For some reason there wasn’t a copy of the recipe in her box or among the recipes she “typed” up for her grandchildren.  Today I was sorting through a file given to me by my aunt and found this recipe.  I think it is the same one.

2 cups finely chopped walnuts
1 cup sugar
4 cups flour
4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. salt
1 pound butter, softened
Powdered sugar, for dusting

In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients with your fingers. Form cookies by rolling a spoonful of dough into a little snake and from into a crescent. Given the pound of butter I am assuming ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Cool.

Dip into powdered sugar, let stand 5 minutes and dip again.
