Let’s make some traditional Vanille Kipferl 😍 Here’s what you'll need: 🌙

Ingredients :

  • 1 Groovy Christmas Playlist 🎼

  • 200g cake flour

  • 80g white sugar

  • Pinch salt

  • 175g unsweetened butter

  • 2 egg yolks

  • 100g ground peeled almond flour

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste

  • 4 packets vanilla sugar


Mix all the ingredients together by hand until you have a smooth dough.

Then divide the dough into two equal parts and shape both parts into a 30-40 cm log. Wrap them up into clear wrap and place the dough into the fridge for at least 1 hour.

After the dough is cooled and developed cut about 1/2 cm of dough at a time and shape into a crescent 🌙 You should get about 60-70 cookies out of this.

The most important part about making Vanille Kipferl here in Namibia 🇳🇦 is to place the crescents into the freezer on a plate for 10 minutes before baking.

Preheat your oven to 165 °C on fan and bake the cookies on a lined baking tray for 12 minutes. (Leave some space between each crescent as they do rise a little)

Add 4 packets of vanilla sugar to a bowl.

Once the cookies are lightly golden, remove them from the oven and let them sit for 2 minutes. Then while they are still hot, immediately start coating them in the vanilla sugar and then leave to cool 🌙!

These make for the best Vanilla cookies you have ever tasted! Promise 💕 Just like granny makes them 🥰
