Crackled Crescents

Crackled Crescents have been in my family longer than I have. My grandmother makes them every single year. We expect them. So yes, this is definitely a recipe from Cookie Day 2010. According to my grandmother, the recipe originally came from some magazine somewhere, but after all this time, nobody remembers which one and we've never found the recipe anywhere else.

You almost didn't get this and neither did we again. My grandmother's dog grabbed the recipe the other day and nearly destroyed it. Fortunately, we rescued it and are able to provide it to you. Plus, now we have multiple backups of the recipe in case that happens again.


3 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup margarine, softened
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 cups sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup miniature chocolate chips
Regular sized chocolate chips
Chopped walnuts

Blend flour and baking powder and set aside.

Beat together the margarine and cream cheese until smooth.  Beat in sugar, egg, and extracts until thoroughly blended and light.

Add flour mixture to margarine mixture and thoroughly blend.  Stir in miniature chocolate chips.

Chill several hours or overnight.  Roll into one inch balls, then shape into crescents.  Bake on ungreased baking sheet for 10-12 minutes in 350 oven.

Spread melted regular chocolate chips in half of each cook and top with walnuts
