Wishing you a very Merry Christmas

Powdered sugar makes these Snowy Vanilla Pecan Crescents cookies very tender and sweet while reduced fat margarine cuts out some of the fat. Rolled oats add a tasty nuritional element.

Snowy Vanilla Pecan Crescents


1 cup light cream cheese (softened)
1 cup powdered sugar, divided
2 sticks fat reduced margarine
1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cup all purpose flour
1-1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

Recipe Directions

Beat margarine, cream cheese and vanilla extract until creamy.

Blend in flour and rolled oats. Gently stir in pecans. Chill for 2 hours, or over night for easier handling.

Roll out into crescent shaped cookies and dip in powdered sugar.

Bake 8 to 12 minutes (depending on how big you make the cookies), or until just starting to turn golden.

Cool for 10 minutes, roll in powdered sugar again.

Right before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar one more time.
