My great Aunt Nona (or, "Aunt Donut" if you're feeling especially sassy) had a perfect recipe for them and mom shared it with me this week as we created our Christmas batch of Crescent cookies. She pulled out a little index card with the recipe typed - via typewriter - crookedly across it. The edges were beginning to brown. Here it is:
Aunt Nona's Crescents
1 cup butter
1/2 cup powder sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup ground nuts
blend butter, sugar and vanilla, add flour in rather small amounts.
then add nuts.
shape in balls or crescents
bake 350----15 min.
roll in powder sugar while warm and again before serving if desired.
I like them made with pecans or walnuts.
