These are delicious almond biscuits rolled in vanilla sugar. They are an ideal Christmas food gift but perfect anytime of the year!
Delish! - 14 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I grew up eating and making Vanillekipferl and absolutely loved them. I used store bought Vanillea sugar (you can get them in German specialty stores). The dough is coarse, but that's how it is meant to be, so it takes a little bit of practice to roll out the long strands and then shape them. The final cookies are pretty fragile as well, but they melt in your mouths!!! the original German recipe (in metric, but if you have a scale, no problem) asks for 300 g flour, 250 g butter, 125 g sugar, 150 g almond flour (ideally the white one, Costco sells it) and the 3 egg yolks. - 06 Dec 2015 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very pretty and delicious. In my oven, 175C for 6min worked well. - 17 Jan 2018 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
