I roll the warm cookies in a sugar/cinnamon mixture instead of powdered sugar.

Very similar to pecan crescents that I make. These are easier to just roll and cut rather than shape into a crescent. Excellent taste and the kids can help roll and cut.

This recipe is very good and easy. It taste very close to a Mexican wedding cookie. It is shaped like a log and not a circle. But you could make them round! They are easy and good and I recommend it!
