Nutty Crescent Cookies

These Nutty Crescent Cookies are one of my favorite Holiday Cookie Recipes. These are elegant, cookies that are good enough to give as a gift. I received this recipe from Pam in my book club several years ago, and I now make them every year during Christmas for my family.

2 cups of flour
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. butter, softened
powdered sugar
finely chopped walnuts
cinnamon sugar (about 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to 1 1/2 cups of sugar)

Mix the cream cheese, butter and flour to make the dough. Divide the dough into four balls. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Roll each ball of dough on a surface covered with powdered sugar. Roll the dough into a circle with a rolling pin using the powdered sugar to prevent sticking, turning the dough over every 2-3 rolls with the rolling pin. Sprinkle chopped walnuts and cinnamon sugar over the dough. Press the nuts into the dough lightly. Cut the dough into 12 pie shaped wedges and then roll each wedge up starting on the wide end, to resemble a crescent. Roll the crescents in additional powdered sugar and put on a cookie sheet seam side down. Bake at 350'F for about 15 minutes.
