Nut Crescents

This is another recipe donated by my mother which is a family favorite. It is a good one to let the kids make as it is almost foolproof. (I say almost, because there is always the chance that somewhere, somehow, and sometimes, even the simplest things may go awry.)
½ cup shortening
½ c butter 1 ¼ c ground walnuts or almonds

2 c sifted flour
1Tbl water
1Tbl vanilla
2 c powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325. Combine butter and shortening until it attains a creamy
texture. Gradually blend in ½ of powdered sugar. Mix in nuts, and then gradually blend in flour. Add vanilla and water and mix well. Using 1Tbs of dough per cookie, shape into crescents on an ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly. Bake for twelve to fifteen minutes at 325. Roll in remaining powdered sugar while still warm. Cool on cookie racks.
