Ice Cream Nut Roll Crescents

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 2,020
Yield: 4 dozen


4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups butter, softened
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
3/4 cup milk
2 (8-ounce) packages walnuts, finely chopped
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Garnish: powdered sugar


Combine flour, butter and ice cream. Form dough into 4 balls; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours. In a saucepan, heat milk just to boiling; let cool slightly. In a bowl, combine milk, walnuts, sugar and vanilla; thin with one to 2 teaspoons milk if too thick. Turn a dough ball out onto a powdered sugar-covered surface. Roll dough into a circle, 1/8-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut circle into 12 wedges. Spread about 2 teaspoons walnut mixture onto each slice; don't overfill. Starting on the wide end, roll up each wedge and form into a crescent shape. Repeat for remaining dough balls. Arrange crescents on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar while still warm. Let cool. Store in an airtight container.
