Another Czech family recipe for Christmas-time cookies. In our family we called them “My Dad’s” favorite, but technically-originally they were my grandfather’s favorite.
I never got to meet my grandfather. But I also love these cookies! And I feel close to family when I’m making them, even if we are far apart.
These vanilla-walnut-butter crescent cookies are perhaps my childhood favorite. Every Christmas our family would get to work in the kitchen, making these and at least four other types of traditional Czech cookies. Generous amounts of butter and a healthy coating of powdered sugar result in a melt-in-your-mouth treat.
