    Rita~'s Note:

    These flaky little crescents were passed on to me from my grandmother. Flour can vary add more or less depending on moisture in the air. Powdered Sugar is used for rolling. The amount can vary because you can roll as big (producing less in amount)or little (produced many little tasty treats)circles as you want.

      The dough for this was very easy to work with (I used half butter and half shortening) after refrigerating overnight. I divided the dough into 8 parts and rolled each part into about a 9 inch circle. I ended up with 64 quite large cresents. I found them to be a bit bland after the first batch, so I did add cinnamon to the filling after that. All in all, a good cookie, but I think it could use a bit more sweetness and the directions could be a little more specific. Thanks for sharing...I will make again with adjustments to our tastes.

      These were not very good. There is no sugar in the dough, and don't seem like a cookie at all. The dough is so soft, even after refrigerating overnight, that it was very, very difficult to work with it--very sticky and doesn't roll out well.
