A Great Use For Walnuts – Buttery Crescent Cookies

A friend of mine who lives further south than I do planted a walnut tree a few years back. I was visiting her recently and she had her first really big walnut harvest. I love cooking so she asked me for ideas on what to use all the walnuts for. That night we coated some chicken breasts in a mixture of ground almonds and whole wheat breadcrumbs and baked them. They were fantastic. The next morning we had walnut maple oatmeal. So good! And we had many other walnut based creations before my mind wandered to a cookie an old aunt of mine used to make for Easter. I called my mom and both sisters but none of them knew how to make these walnut crescent cookies. They all remembered them quite fondly but no one had though to ask for the recipe while our dear old Aunt Emma was still around.

I began an intensive internet earch and found many recipes. We tried some of them that week. Our 5th attempt was using a recipe from a toaster oven review site. That was the one! Not only did it produce the best cookies out of all we had tried, they were also just like the ones my aunt made. Since then I have made more and shipped them to my mother and sisters and they also agree that 1 – the cookies are fantastic and 2 – the cookies are just like the ones Aunt Emma made for Easter. I feel like we have recovered a treasured piece of famliy history.

So let me tell you why you should make these crescent cookies, even though you don't have fond childhood memories revolving around them (or maybe you do.) They are absolutely outstanding! They are buttery, light and kind of just melt in your mouth! They are delicate and oh so delcious! They are also easy to make and keep for a while. In fact, they taste best a few days after you bake them. Really, they do! It's as if all other moisture leaves the cookies by then and you are left with just the melt in your mouth butteriness. They are so good! Here is a link to the recipe if you are interested:
