Walnut Crescent Cookies

My family loves cookies, so I try to keep the cookie jar always full.

While I make the usual chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies, I also enjoy trying different combinations to fill the jar.

Today it was these buttery delicious cookies. I'm sure you have made them before.

The reason I picked these was actually because I'm out of eggs and needed a recipe that didn't include them. So, this was it. I may need to make more tomorrow as these are pretty much gone.
