This is one of my favorite cookies. My good friend Roula use to make them for me all the time. Until I begged for the recipe.

I like them with lots of the icing sugar mixture on them.... I hope you will enjoy this delicious treat as much as we do.

How to Make Spiced Hazelnut Crescent Cookies

  3. Cut the cold butter into the flour and mix.
  4. Next add the powdered sugar, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and mace, the ground hazelnuts and the whole egg.
  5. To help knead the mixture into a dough quickly, you will need to rinse your hands in cold water. It helps the dough to cling together easily.
  6. Wrap the dough and chill for half an hour.
  7. Form the dough into thumb thick rolls and cut into 1 cm wide pieces.
  8. Now roll and form the dough into crescents.
  9. Bake in a 160° Celsius oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cookies are light gold in color.
  10. Mix the powdered sugar and vanilla sugar together, well.
  11. Roll or sprinkle the powdered sugar mixture on the cookies. You want to do this while the cookies are hot, it will stick easier.
  12. You can decide how much sugar you want on the cookies, if you want more, roll them again.

    Hope you will enjoy this lovely treat.
