Vanillekipferl recipe

How to make them:

  • Quickly mix all the ingredients to a short-crust dough and leave it in a cool place for one hour.

  • Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1 cm before cutting into small pieces and forming crescent-shaped biscuits.

  • Place the cookies on an ungreased baking tray and bake at a moderate temperature (200°C) for around ten minutes or until they turn a light brown colour.

  • Mix icing sugar and vanilla sugar together, then toss the hot cookies in the mix.

  • Store the biscuits in a sealed tin for several days for them to become crumbly.

Make sure that you hide your Vanillekipferl well, so that nobody can get at them before you can!

Guten Appetit!
