Mmmh, you know that Christmas is in the air in our house when I start the Christmas Cookie baking. This year a little late, due to the arrival of Pip Squeak, but non the less, achieved (finally!).
Our favourite are “Vanille Kipferl”, here’s a recipe:
280g Plain Flour
210g Butter (unsalted)
100g ground almonds
70g Icing Sugar
Pinch of salt
To roll in after baking: 150g Icing Sugar, 2 Packets of Vanilla Sugar
Crumble flour, butter and salt together. Add almonds and sugar and knead into a dough. Form “Kipferl” (crescents).
Bake in oven (140C – 160C) until light brown.
Roll in Icing/Vanilla Sugar whilst still hot. Cool on rack.
