Cook Time



1 cup: butter, softened

1/3 cup: white sugar

1/2 cup: finely ground walnuts

1 teaspoon: vanilla extract

1 pinch: salt

1 2/3 cups: all-purpose flour

1/2 cup: white sugar

4 teaspoons: ground cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1/3 cup of sugar until smooth. Mix in the walnuts, vanilla, salt and flour until well blended. Shape tablespoonfuls of dough into crescent shapes. Place 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the bottoms begin to brown. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and cinnamon. Roll the cookies in the cinnamon sugar while still hot. Cool completely before storing in an airtight tin.
