Pine Nut Crescents

2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
pinch salt
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 egg yolks
1 Tablespoon grated orange rind
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons honey
3/4 cup pine nuts

In a bowl stir together flour, nutmeg and salt; set aside. Preheat
oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer bowl, combine butter and brown
sugar; beat until fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating
well after each addition. Blend in orange rind and vanilla. Gradually
add flour mixture, beating until thoroughly combined. Using about
1 Tablespoon dough for each cookie, shape dough into a strand about
3 inches long, then curve into a crescent. Place crescents about
2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Heat honey in a small
pan over low heat until fluid and warm to the touch. Lightly brush
honey over the tops and sides of crescents, then liberally coat
with pine nuts, pressing them in gently. Bake until cookies are
golden (10-12 minutes). Let cool on baking sheets 1-2 minutes,
then transfer to wire racks to complete cooling. Makes 30.
