Fabulous! So easy! Found this recipe on Food I recommend chopping the nuts first then measure the 1 cup of nuts required. Also, I used a 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for the white, you couldn't tell the difference, it was so good, couldn't stop eating them ;-)

With floured hands, take out about 1 tablespoon of dough and shape into a crescent. Continue to dust hands with flour as you make more cookies. Place onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 40 minutes. When cool enough to handle but still warm, roll in additional confectioners' sugar. Cool on wire racks.
