      These tasted great. They were a little dense so perhaps I didn't let them raise long enough as I would have liked them to have had a little lighter texture. I will try making them again since they had such good flavor.

      I made this recipe by hand as the paddle for my bread machine decided to play hide-and-seek with me. The lemon taste was delightful and refreshing. This is not too sweet. I'd double the amount of raisins and nuts as that is my preference. I would also divide the dough into 4 and cut each rolled out dough circle into 8 wedges to make smaller crescents. Have to keep an eye on them while baking as they brown fast. Mine were done in about 10 minutes. I didn't use the glaze as we prefer them without.
