Don't you miss it! Don't you miss it! Some of you people just about missed it

Okay, had to resurrect an old Talking Heads line for the headline -- couldn't help myself. Rita's excellent recipe for the GoodYaDaughter cookies was buried in the comments, so I thought I'd pull it out just in case you missed it hiding there:

Filling:
l bag raisins
1 bag figs
1 bag whole almonds
1 bag walnuts
skin of orange
skin of tangerine
2 tsp. cinnamon
Grind together

Add approx 5 c. strong, cold coffee with sugar added to desired sweetness.
Saturate overnight in refrigerator.

Pastry:
2 lbs flour
2 - 3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
Sm. can crisco (Melted)
Make well in flour, slowly pour crisco. Form ball - let rest in frige l-l 1/2 hrs.
Roll dough, cut into squares (approx. 3"). Fill middle, roll and shape into cresents (not S's)

Bake, seam down, 350 oven 30-35 min. (small slit in tops)

Top with powdered sugar.

Yum!!

OK, I just have to ask, how did the cookies get that name?
