Vanilla Kipfels


Oh god, Vanilla Kipfels.  These are the best cookies.  I’ve made them at parties and they’ve not made it on to the serving platter, as they were gobbled up by the guests directly from the cooling rack. Recipe courtesy of Grandma, Roslyn Freiberg.



1 lb unsalted butter, room temperature

1 lb all purpose flour

4 TB sugar

1 cup ground almonds

Vanilla sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Mix all the ingredients together.  Roll in to a long roll, cut and shape in to crescents.  Place on parchment lined baking sheets and bake 10 minutes or “until done.”  Place on cooling rack and dust with vanilla sugar.


See how long you can resist eating them (all).


These have a tendency to fall apart, so they’re not good for giving away in cookie tins.
