{walnut crescents}

Christmas wouldn't be the same without making these cookies. This is my grandmother's recipe, and after we moved away and didn't live near her anymore, she would send these to us along with all of her favorite cookie and candy recipes every Christmas. We looked forward to it all year!


2 c. unsifted flour
1 c. butter, softened
1/4 c. powdered sugar
2 T. cold water
2 tsp. vanilla
2/3 c. chopped walnuts

Beat butter and sugar together. Add flour and water alternately. When mixed, add vanilla and walnuts. Shape into crescent shapes and bake about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Sift some powdered sugar on a cutting board. Place baked cookies on sugar directly out of the oven, and coat completely with sugar. Let cool.
