Imagine our suprise when the resulting dough was a joy to work with! We now make them regularly. Relating this story to my mother caused her to get a food processor.
NOT recommended to be made without a food processor!
Note that as this is a European recipe, the ingredients are measured by weight, not volume. dg stands for decagram.

Insert the metal blade into your Cusinart and put all ingredients except powdered sugar into the workbowl. Process until mixture is completely mixed. Take a portion of the dough and, using your fingers, work it back and forth on the board until it is approximately 3/8 inch in diameter. Cut into 2.5 inch long pieces and carefully bend into crescent shapes. Tapering the ends yields a more aesthetic cookie, at the expense of some additional work. Place on greased cookie sheet, bake until light; approximately 10-15 minutes at 325 degrees. While warm, roll in powdered sugar to coat. Store refrigerated.
