Another very special cookie recipe for my Christmas cookies selection this year, are the Dycio Crescents. These might look like a lot of work, forming crescents from cookie dough, but soon you will find out how simple these actually are.
These crescents are not very sweet, but light and flaky in texture, and the jam centers make them that much more delightful
My next few posts will include the cookie recipes I have introduced to you in my cookie preview post.
I am starting with my most favorite cookies, the Cream Wafers. If you read the ingredients, you might not be able to envision how decadent these really are. They are very light and flaky, resemble a puff pastry, and practically melt in your mouth.
I know some of you started baking your Christmas cookies a while back, and are all done by now, but I just started this weekend, and if it wasn’t for the huge snow fall, and all the shoveling we had to do, I would have been done baking and posting my recipes, and pictures, for you to enjoy.
If you are looking for an easy, light (no butter or any other fat used) , and dainty cookies, this is a recipe for you. This is a very simple recipe, quick baking, and produces wafer thin delicious cookies. In taste, these cookies resemble lady fingers or zwieback cookies. I used vanilla extract in this recipe, but I think almond extract would produce a very interesting flavor as well.
These crisp and feather-light wafers make a great addition to a dessert platter for a tea party.
