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.
wow..rita, these are excellent!!! I dont even want to think of how many calories I consumed lolol.. these went over well... gave them to many friends as well :-) I think the filling would be great using a variety of ground nuts together...as one would in something like baklava!
