  • 1 cup butter unsalted, softened
  • ½ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar for coating
  • 1 cup finely chopped peanuts


  • Cream butter and sugar at low speed. Beat in Vanilla and gradually add in flour and chopped peanuts. Continue to mix until you get a nice non-sticky dough
  • Clean your hands and dust some flour on them and get ready to shape the dough into about 2-inch balls and then flatten it with your palms and shape it into a crescent shape
  • Preheat your oven to 375F and lay a parchment paper on your baking sheets. Once oven is preheated, bake for 25-30 minutes or until they turn slightly brown. Let them rest for about 5 minutes and then dip them into the sugar while they are still lightly warm and then let them cool down completely before storing in air-tight container
