Directions

Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl until creamy.
Stir in the flour, then the nuts and mix well.
Stir in 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg and knead lightly until the dough holds together.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly butter 2 cookie sheets.
Set the dough on a lightly floured work surface and roll it out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
Stamp out the dough, using a 2-to-3-inch crescent cookie cutter.
Put the cookies on the baking sheets and brush with the remaining egg.
Bake for about 8 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned.
Transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool.
Repeat the procedure with the remaining dough.
