Here's what ya need:
4 cups of flour
1 cup of confect. sugar
2 eggs yolks
1 jigger (shot) of whiskey
1lb unsalted butter
extra confect. sugar
In your mixer blend the sugar & butter.
Next,add egg yolks and mix.
Now, add the whiskey and mix
Finally add the flour.
Mix the ingredients until dough comes away from bowl (I used a spoonula thing..because the dough gets all over your hands.. I use my hands at the end... when it comes together better)
** You may need a little more flour at the end.. you'll know.
Once your dough is formed, roll into crescents (they should look like a cresent moon.. not too thick.. not to big.. about the length of your pointer finger..then curve to shape like a moon)
Once you have formed the crescents, push a walnut in the center.. (small - medium piece of a walnut.. not an entire huge walnut)
Now, bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
While they are baking- place some confectioners sugar onto a plate or piece of wax paper.
Then,while the cookies are still warm(but not burning hot! Wait a minute or two! If they are too hot they will break in half).. roll in confect. sugar.
