Walnut Crescents
Lake View Cottage B&B  ~  Silver Lake,

1 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1  3/4 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a
cookie sheet.  Preheat oven to 300
degrees F.  Cream butter, confectioner's
sugar, vanilla and salt until fluffy.  Stir in
walnuts and flour until blended.  Cover
and child about 30 minutes until firm
enough to handle.  Break off small pieces
of dough on a lightly floured board, roll
into finger-thick rolls.  Cut off 2 inches
pieces.  Taper the ends and shape into
crescents.  Place 1 inch apart on baking

Bake 18-20 minutes or until firm to
touch.  While warm, roll in confectioner's
sugar and place on racks to cool.  Store in
an airtight container.

Makes 60 cookies.
This recipe part of a virtual "cookie tour" of 17 inns in the Mt. Washington Valley of
New Hampshire...a real annual cookie and gingerbread tour that takes place the first
weekend of every December.
