My friend makes these cookies and I covet them each Christmas, so this year I went in search of a recipe to duplicate. I came across this one and another on this site (Pecan Crescents). So many recipes come down to personal preference but I must say, this Crescent Cookies recipes paled in comparison to the other. The most notable difference was 2.5 cups flour here vs 2 cups flour + 1/2 cup powdered sugar blended in on the other recipe. Having the sugar IN the dough really makes a big difference in texture and sweetness and I much prefer the other version. This one had drier dough that was harder to keep together while rolling and nearly every cookie broke when I gently tossed in the powdered sugar. If you're a fan of these, but this version also isn't quite right for your tastes, try the "Pecan Crescents."
