Vanilla Crescent Cookies are light, crisp, and fragrant. They can be stored in an airtight container between sheets of parchment paper for up to 1 week. Dust the cookies very lightly with powdered sugar before serving.

  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter (Softened)
  • 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar (Plus More For Dusting)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 1/4 Cups Unbleached Flour (Plus More For Dusting)
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  1. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. In large-size bowl beat butter with 1/2 cup powdered sugar for 5 minutes. Beat in vanilla. Add 2 1/4 cups unbleached flour and kosher salt. Beat until combined.
  4. On lightly floured surface roll out dough into 3-inch ropes. Taper ends slightly and form ropes into crescents. Carefully transfer crescents to prepared baking sheets 1/2 inch apart.
