1 hr
1 hr 55 min



2/3 cup sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup pecans, toasted, finely chopped

1/4 teaspoon salt


1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

3 tablespoons bourbon  

1 tablespoon water

Finely chopped pecans, if desired


 *Substitute water.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine sugar, butter and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, 1 cup pecans and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Form dough into 1-inch balls; shape into crescents. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 11-14 minutes or until set. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Stir together powdered sugar and enough bourbon in bowl for thin glazing consistency. Drizzle cooled cookies with glaze. Immediately sprinkle with finely chopped pecans, if desired.

Tip #1

A few simple steps make shaping cookie dough into crescents a snap. Start by rolling a 1 inch ball of dough. Roll the ball between your palms, making a 2 1/2-inch log with tapered ends. Then curve slightly into a crescent shape.

This recipe is excellent!! Took me alittle time to get the crescents shape since it was the first cookie I have ever done in that shape. It has now become a favoite holiday cookie at family gathering for the last 3 years.
