Crescent Cookies (Vanillekipferl) are a European Christmas tradition and a holiday staple in our family. These sweet, delicate cookies are typically made with walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts. This year we used pecans for a different taste, and because we had easy access to them.
The nutty flavour is complimented by the vanilla extract in the dough, and the dusting of powdered sugar on top — sure to be a cookie that everyone will enjoy this holiday season. If you have vanilla powder, you can add it to your powdered sugar for extra flavour!
