  1. All the above look very nice and tasty but the pecan cresent cookies are calling my name. I remember a lady that used to make these when I was little and I still remember them today. So good Have a great holiday and thanks for the post andi

  2. If you wanted to have almond crescents, could you substitute the pecans for ground almonds and keep everything the same? Thanks!

  3. I made the Pecan Crescents Cookies this evening. Followed the recipe exactly except I used 1/4 tsp Maple extract instead of almond.
    Absolutely delighted because they are delicious! Thank you!

    • No, you don’t need to grease the cookie sheet. I do like to use parchment paper, not because the cookies will stick, just because I like the way the cookies brown with it.

    • Hi Tanna, You can freeze the dough to bake later but I wouldn’t freeze the baked cookies. I’m afraid when thawed the confectioners’ sugar will melt.

  4. Are these like Mexican Wedding Cookies? They are really expensive on Amazon. I used to buy these at Christmastime at the grocery store. Now, super hard to find. I like pecans. Use almond extract with pecans?? Thank you. PS: Years ago, I added salt but had used self-rising four. Ewee big mistake!!!

    • Hi Sandra, I’ve never had a Mexican Wedding Cookie so…..all I can say is these cookies are delicious and melt in your mouth. The almond extract is what gives the cookies their delicious flavor.

  5. I made these using walnuts instead of pecans. They came out perfect. I also waited until they cooled to coat them with powered sugar. I don’t like the way the powdered sugar melts on the hot cookies. Thanks for the recipe and Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  6. I’m thinking of tipping one end of the cookie in chocolate and then once everything has set then rolling the cookie in icing sugar?
