Vanille Kipferl I12 Reviews
“This recipe is known in America as almond crescents. I converted the measurements and translated this recipe that has been in my family for generations. It's a German Christmas cookie.” - by Christiane
Original recipe yields 3 dozen
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).
- Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter with pastry blender, then quickly knead into a dough.
- Shape dough into logs and cut off 1/2 inch pieces. Shape each piece into a crescent and place on a non-stick paper lined cookie sheet.
- Bake approximately 8 to 10 minutes. Cool 1 minute and carefully roll in vanilla sugar. (To make vanilla sugar, blend 1/2 vanilla bean with 1 cup of sugar, sieve). Tip: vanilla sugar comes out like powered sugar, to make it stick to the cookie better, I mix it with regular sugar.

Let's just say that if you like the but..." See moreter cookies that you buy in the tins, you will absolutely LOVE these! I did make one slight adjustment. I didn't have any vanilla beans for the sugar so just used powdered sugar. Then, I added 1/4tsp vanilla and 1/4tsp almond extract to the cookie dough. "
"Bake at 375 degrees and they come out perfectly. Mixing the vanilla sugar with regular sugar does make it stick better. Great cookie that melts in your mouth...." See more"
