    Divaconviva's Note:

    I have to thank my Grandma Schatz for these delectable cookies. I always bake them to take to parties and Open Houses during the Christmas holidays, but these are wonderful any time of year! You can substitute ground walnut meats if that's easier, but the toasted hazelnuts taste amazing!

    Serves: 72



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees Farenheit.
    2. 2
      Grind the nuts (A mouli grater works quickly and easily).
    3. 3
      Work butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Please don’t use margarine because that’s a different recipe!
    4. 4
      Add flour, salt, vanilla and nuts; mix until well blended.
    5. 5
      Using your hands, take ball of dough the size of a medium orange, and work it on the counter using both hands, rolling it until it looks like a rope, almost ½ inch thick. I have never chilled the dough, but you might chill it if you find it easier for handling it.
    6. 6
      Cut into three-inch lengths.
    7. 7
      Place on ungreased cookie sheet, either on foil or parchment paper, curving them into “C” shapes about one inch apart, and bake 18 to 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Cool crescents until cool enough to handle, and roll in confectioner's sugar, pressing gently so as not to break them, until completely covered.
    9. 9
      Makes about 6 dozen cookies.
    10. 10
      TOASTING HAZELNUTS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place hazelnuts in single layer on cookie sheet and toast until the skins begin to split, about 10 minutes. Rub the warm nuts vigorously with a clean kitchen towel to remove the skins. Return nuts to the pan and toast until fragrant and golden brown, about 2 – 3 minutes more. (Remember to turn oven down for the cookies.).

      I have not tried your recipe, but I make the same recipe, only with finely chopped walnuts instead of hazelnuts, & it is absolutely DELICIOUS! I'm sure they are just as good with hazelnuts.
