TwilightSagaFood: 'New Moon' Cheesy Crescents

Print  Friendly and PDF
As I promised, here is the New Moon Treat some of you were waiting for. For this I had to scratch my brain and finalize on something that resembles a Waxing Crescent Moon(A sliver of a thing seen soon after sunset). These crispy and cheese flavored crescents will make an excellent accompaniment to Tea/Coffee or a replacement for popcorn. Recipe Idea adapted from Easy Home Cooking, June/July 2003 edition.

  • Quick Oats - 1/4 cup
  • Whole Wheat Flour - 1/4 cup
  • Shredded Cheddar& Monterey Jack Cheese - 1/2 cup or more
  • Parmesan Cheese - 1/8 cup, grated
  • Smart Balance Spread - 1/8 cup, softened (Margarine was used in the original recipe)
  • Water - 1 tbsp
  • Pine Nuts - 1/4 cup, dry roasted and smashed roughly
  • Salt - a pinch
  • In a bowl, mix both the cheeses, margarine, salt and water until completely blended.
  • Mix the flour with the above mixture and add the nuts and oats. 
  • Combine all and shape the dough in the form or a log.
  • Wrap it in cling wrap and let it sit for 4 hrs - overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Using a serrated knife slice the dough into thin chips.
  • Cut crescents from the chips using a cookie cutter.
  • Repeat the same with leftover dough and line them all up in a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges are browned.
  • Cool and consume.
Makes ~30 crecents.

'New Moon' Quotes by Edward Cullen(Hero) to Bella Swan(Heroine):
  • I love you. You're my only reason to stay alive.. if that's what I am.
  • You smell just exactly the same as always. So maybe this is hell. I don’t care. I’ll take it.
  • I thought I’d explained it clearly before. Bella, I can’t live in a world where you don’t exist.
  • Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars—points of light and reason.. And then you shot across my sky like a meteor...
  • You will always be the most beautiful thing in my world..
  • Your hold is permanent and unbreakable. Never doubt that.
