Chocolate-Dipped Crescents
Get started!



1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda


1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons shortening


Finely chopped pecans, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    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.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into fourths. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    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.

  5. STEP 5

    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.

Tip #1

Powdered Sugared: Roll cooled cookies in powdered sugar.
