Known as Vanille Kipferl in German, these vanilla cookies are traditionally shaped like a crescent and covered in powdered sugar. Made with crushed almonds and vanilla extract, these cookies have a rich and buttery vanilla flavor. Chill the dough before shaping in order to make sure the cookies hold their shape in the oven.
