    swissms's Note:

    Serve with a fruit and cheese plate. Be careful not to use more than the 2 teaspoonfuls of dough called for when making each cookie or the crescents will not be as beautiful. Do not omit the powdered sugar, it makes all the difference in the cookie! From Bon Appetit, March 2000.

      These are very tasty and easy to make!! They have a nice buttery crisp like a shortbread and are very light. I didn't get quite 30 cookies, but I also didn't measure the dough'exactly'. We had them by themselves (DS dunked them in milk) as an afternoon snack.
