1 cup butter at room temperature

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup pecans or walnuts, finely chopped

1 cup all-purpose flour

Extra confectioner’s sugar for coating cookie

Beat confectioner’s sugar, butter and vanilla with electric mixer in a large bowl until fluffy. Add nuts and mix well until blended. Gradually, beat in flour until well blended. Wrap dough and chill for at least 2 hours.

Heat oven to 325 degrees. On a lightly floured board, roll each piece into 1 1/2 inch thick rope and cut into 1 inch length. Bend into crescent shapes and taper end.

Place on ungreased cookie sheets about an inch apart. Bake 12 to 15 minutes until light golden. While warm, roll in confectioner’s sugar and cool on racks.

Makes about 100 cookies.
