    Hanka's Note:

    We make these delicious crescents every year for Christmas it is our family tradition. We call them Vanilkove rohlicky in my country and everybody knows them. You can use ground hazelnuts instead of ground almonds. I use almond meal which is same. The dough itself is not too sweet but icing sugar on the top makes them nice and sweet. Texture is similar to short-bread, crispy, crumbly. You can store them in airtight container for weeks.
