      This is our family's favorite Christmas cookie! The only thing we do differently is sprinkle flaked sweetened coconut (maybe 1/3 cup total) over the rounds after the preserves and walnuts. Then we sprinkle the rolled crescents with granulated sugar before baking, rather than with the powdered sugar afterwards. Thanks so much for posting, now I'll always have this recipe at hand!
