Delicious walnut crescent cookies that just melt in your mouth are a perfect snack in the festive December.
These delicious cookies are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, all you could want in a cookie! Walnut meals give them a pleasant nutty taste and makes them super tender and full of flavour. They go great with a cup of hot tea, especially on cold winter days, and they also look like the perfect winter dessert, as powdered sugar creates a nice illusion of snow.
Not only do they taste exceptionally, they are also very easy to prepare. You only need 5 basic ingredients and a good half an hour, and you can already have a tasty homemade cookies ready. Crescent cookies remain edible for a long time, but you need to keep them in a tightly closed container. However at our house they never last too long, as we all love them and they are gone in minutes.
All you need to prepare these delicious croissants are 5 very basic ingredients that you probably already have at home. You need:
- semi-white flour – you can also use all purpose white soft in the same ratio, but if you want to use another type, you may need to adjust the amount of water,
- coconut sugar – you can also use brown cane sugar if desired,
- ground walnuts – walnuts gave this cookies a nice taste, but you can also use almonds or hazelnuts instead,
- coconut oil and
You can also sprinkle them with some powdered sugar for a perfect snowy look. We used erythritol powder instead, as it is very similar in appearance and taste to sugar, but contains zero calories.
The preparation takes very little time and is very easy, so it is also suitable for complete beginners. All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients well together and finally knead with your hands or an electric mixer to get a soft and homogeneous dough. Then let it rest in the fridge for about half an hour to cool and harden a bit, as it becomes easier to shape. Then divide dough into around 16 parts (depending on what size of cookies you want to make) and shape each one into a roll first and then wrap the ends in the shape of a letter C. Finally bake them for 10 minutes at 180°C, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
To make it even easier for you to follow the process, we prepared a short video recipe, which you can find below.
