They simply can’t be missing from any cookie plate, can they? Vanilla crescents, with a delicate taste of nuts and almond, covered with a layer of icing and vanilla sugar.
That’s exactly how we love them!
And here is the recipe for our vanilla crescents:
- 320 g Flour
- 60 g unpeeled, ground almonds
- 60 g unshelled, ground nuts
- 270 g Butter
- 120 g Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Pinch of salt
- Dust and vanilla sugar for rolling
Mix the flour with the nuts and almonds and make a well in the center. Add the butter cut into cubes, sugar, eggs and salt and knead. Gradually add the mixture of flour, nuts and almonds and work it into a fine dough. This must now rest for an hour in a cold place.
From the rested dough you form small balls, which you walk into rolls and then form into croissants. Bake at 180° for 8 to 10 minutes. Roll the still warm croissants in the vanilla-dusted sugar mixture.
Have fun baking and enjoy the vanilla crescents!
