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.
Walnut Crescent Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour. Stir in walnuts.
Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 2-1/2-in. logs and shape into crescents. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 325° for 20-22 minutes or until set and bottoms are lightly browned. Let stand for 2-3 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
Yield: 6 dozen.
From: Have this one handwritten on a piece of paper, have had it for many years and can't remember where I copied it from, but I am almost certain it was Taste of Home.
