Also known as vanille kipferl, these vanilla almond crescent biscuits use a fresh vanilla bean, ground almonds and a bit of flour. They make a lovely treat.
2 cups (250g) plain flour
1/3 cup (70g) white sugar
3/4 cup (110g) ground almonds
250g unsalted butter
1/2 whole vanilla bean
- Preheat oven to 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 2cm pieces. Shape each piece into a crescent and place on a greaseproof paper lined baking tray.
- 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 icing sugar, to make it stick to the biscuit better, I mix it with white sugar.
