140 g (4.95 oz) soft flour
200 g (7 oz) butter
80 g (2.8 oz) sugar
100 g (3.5 oz) ground walnuts or almonds

After that form little crescents (7g/0.25 oz), arrange them on a baking pan covered with baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes at 180°C (356 °F).
When baked and still hot, roll them in powder sugar mixed with vanilla sugar.
