Walnut Crescents

Walnut cresents

Weekends are filled with cookie baking and candy making during the holiday season.  This recipe is one of our favorites.  A light buttery cookie with bits of walnuts, dusted with powdered sugar.  Just right for the holiday season.

3 3/4 cup flour

1 1/2 cup butter

1 tablespoon vanilla

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

3/4 cup corn syrup

2 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Mix flour and cinnamon.  Beat butter, corn syrup and vanilla till well blended.  Stir in flour and nuts.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 3 hours.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Shape dough by rounded teaspoon into 2 inch rolls and then shape into crescents.  Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake until light brown on bottoms, about 15 minutes.  Cool.  Roll in powdered sugar.
