    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    These rich and buttery crescent cookies are studded with macadamia nuts, drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze that has a faint hint of ginger, and garnished with a shower of more chopped macadamias. Perfect with tea. (Recipe from a Land 'O Lakes cookie magazine.)

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350*F.
    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer set at medium speed, cream together the butter, sugar, ginger, and vanilla until fluffy; scrape down sides of bowl as needed.
    3. 3
      Reduce mixer speed to low; blend in the flour just until combined. Gently stir in the macadamias.
    4. 4
      Shape dough into 1" balls; form into crescents. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
    5. 5
      Bake 9-11 minutes or until set; transfer cookies to wire racs and cool completely.
    6. 6
      Meanwhile, make the icing: melt the 1/4 cup butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat.
    7. 7
      Cook, stirring constantly and watching closely, until butter just begins to turn golden brown (4-6 minutes). Immediately remove from heat; cool sightly.
    8. 8
      In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, powdered sugar, ginger, and enough half-and-half for desired drizzling consistency.
    9. 9
