Buttery cookies filled with a walnut filling


  • For the filling:
  • 12 ounces walnuts, crushed
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • For the dough:
  • 1 pound butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6 cups flour


  1. For the filling: Combine walnuts, sugar, milk and vanilla in a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the milk has evaporated. Set aside to cool.
  2. For the dough: Cream the first four ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, one cup at a time, mixing each cup into the batter. Roll a portion of the dough out on a large flat surface until it is thin (about 1/8-inch thick.) Cut out circles three inches in diameter.
  3. Place a heaping teaspoon of the filling lengthwise in the center of each circle and fold the dough over to form a semi circle. With the tine of a fork, gently press the edges to seal the dough around the filling, then bend the semi circle slightly to form a crescent shape, and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake cookies at 350 degrees until light golden brown about 8 - 10 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar.
