Polski Day Cresent Cookies Recipe


  • 2 cups butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
  • Sifted Confectioner’s Sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter, gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy.  Sift together flour and salt; add to cream mixture.  Add more flour if needed, to make dough easy to handle. Add finely chopped pecans. Chill dough at least one hour before using.  Shape dough into 3/4 inch crescents, place 2 inches apart on greased or lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.  Roll in confectioner’s sugar while still warm.  Makes 6 dozen.  Store in air tight container for 1 week or freeze up to 6 months.

Polksi Day will be held Saturday, May 5, 2012. There will be a parade beginning at noon. Event proceeds benefit All Saints Parish (formerly St. Joseph-St. Benedicts).
