These buttery crescent cookies are an extra special holiday cookie, but very easy to make.
Combine powdered sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough into fourths. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375°F.
Roll each fourth (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) into 4 (10-inch) ropes. Cut each rope into 4 (2 1/2-inch) pieces. Shape each piece into crescent. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cookies do not brown. Cool completely.
Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1-2 minutes until melted. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; immediately sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired. Let stand until set.
• Roll cooled cookies in powdered sugar.
• Dip cooled cookies in melted (almond bark) vanilla candy coating; sprinkle with decorator candies.

I loved making these the first time and I've decided to make them again! They turned out exactly like the photo and everyone at the party enjoyed them!
My cookies seem to be a bit flatter than the photo. I went ahead and dipped them in chocolate and nuts, everyone loved them. so I didn't say anything and several people asked for the recipe. These are definitely on the keeper list.
What is the secret to having these cookies hold their shape?
I have been making these every year for about 5 years now. They are my kids favorites! I also use holiday sprinkles and non-parels (SP?) and flaked coconut in addition to the nuts to sprinkle on the chocolate!
I had trobule making the cresents so I just made them into round balls and flattened. These are a must have at my house. WONDERFUL!!!!
I have made these cookies two years running so far. I enjoy them every time. This year I made the chocolate and white baking chip coatings like last year. But I also made some with a butterscotch coating. YUM YUM!!
I make this cookies every year and they are beautiful and taste delicious.

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.

Everyone’s first thought for a sports party is savory appetizers – but let’s not forget about the best part of a meal…dessert! Whether you’re feeding hungry kids or hungry friends, a sweet treat is always a welcome addition to your tailgating spread. More ...
