This is the same basic recipe that my Oma made all her life except that she used walnuts. I've been making these for many years and just let my Kitchen Aid do the work. The eight to ten minute baking time is off tho. At 325 the cookies should bake for fifteen to twenty minutes. Because they're such a delicate cookie, I let them cool completely before I start to dip them into the sugar. I use regular granulated sugar as powdered tends to yellow and disappear into the cookie. Thanks Christiane for passing on this wonderful recipe.

Very easy to make and Very Delicious! This would be great with pecans or your favorite nut ground up. I just rolled them in 10X powdered sugar without the vanilla and they were still great!

This is very popular Christmas cookie in Germany. You need to add a pinch of salt, and eggs depending on how many cookies you make.

These cookies taste delicious! As obvious in the recipe, this is a very buttery dough, which could be hard to work with. After cutting butter into the dry mixture, I scraped it onto a sheet of plastic wrap, and made a log wrapping the dough. I chilled the dough for a while before shaping it into crescents---but this could have been a mistake because cookies started becoming really lax and flattened out while baking. As the first reviewers suggested, I cooled the cookies on the baking sheet until they are solid. This way, I had no problem transfering them to the cooling rack. I will have to experiment with this but great cookies overall.

Bake at 375 degrees and they come out perfectly. Mixing the vanilla sugar with regular sugar does make it stick better. Great cookie that melts in your mouth.

I made this recipe recently to take to my children's preschool for United Nations Day. I don't know exactly how this traditional cookie should taste, so I can't rate its authenticity. I baked the cookies a bit longer than the directions because they were still so soft. Even then, the challenge became to coat the cookies with the powdered sugar without breaking the crescents. The cookies were very delicate. I allowed them to cool just a bit longer than suggested though I got them off the cookie sheets quickly so they didn't become a scraping challenge. Great flavor and a beautiful, delicate cookie. Thanks!
