This recipe comes from an 83 y/o neighbor of mine whom has been like a grandmother to me. As ever, it's a hand written recipe, with little instruction, however, you bakers can figure it out! I don't know where she got it from, but I'm here to tell ya, they're pretty darn good, and not very difficult to make. They remind me of Italian Wedding cookies. We make them mainly for the Christmas holiday's. Depending on how big you make your crescents, I'm just estimating on the amount yielded - you really can play with the size and shape. I usually make my crescents about as big as a "C" or "D" battery, omg, hope that helps! There was no measurement given for the powdered sugar, oy vey, but I usually use about 2 cups, and have some left over.
