Pine Nut Crescents
(Misofengara Me Koukounaria)
What You Need:
  • 2 sticks (½ pound) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • How To Cook:
    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

    2. In a bowl beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time.

    3. Add orange peel and vanilla extract. Stir in flour and blend well.

    4. Measure about 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie and roll between lightly floured palms into ropes about 2½ inches long.

    5. Place cookies 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet. Shape each into a crescent.

    6. Press pine nuts firmly into cookies to anchor. Heat honey over low heat until it liquefies and brush it liberally over cookies.
