Vanillekipferl Biscuits

    Enjoy Austrian Christmas atmosphere at home with these wonderfully light biscuits.

    How to make them:

    Step 1:

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

    Step 2:

    Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1 cm (0.4 in) before cutting it into small pieces and forming crescent-shaped biscuits.

    Step 3:

    Place the biscuits on an ungreased baking tray and bake them at a moderate temperature (200°C / 392°F) for around 10 minutes or until they turn slightly brown.

    Step 4:

    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 to hide your Vanillekipferl well, so that nobody can get them before you!
