"This is a recipe that I learned in Austria, where it is a standard for the Christmas season. Western Austrians love hazelnuts, and use them in the majority of their baked goods. These are traditionally hand formed into half moon shapes, but I prefer to roll them into small balls and press a whole hazelnut into the top. Preparation time does not include chilling of dough."

"this is a traditional Austrian recipe for vanilla crecents or vanilla kipferl in german language. In vienna we use almonds instead of hazelnuts and ground them with sugar and vanilla and not with flour. Here in Austria its everybodys'must make' recipe during holiday season. Try them with almonds, they are really 'melt in your mouth' cookies."
