Description

Lightly flavored with vanilla sugar, the Vanillekipferl are made from a combination of ground almonds and flour for a cookie with a close shortbread like texture. Refrigerate the dough before shaping so that the cookies do not lose their shape in the oven. Coated with powdered sugar for an elegant finish, these crescent shaped cookies sure to become a household Christmastime favorite.
