Ingredients:

  • 300g flour
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 175g butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • confectioners’ sugar and vanilla sugar for rolling and dusting

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (175 C)
Mix all the ingredients to a short-crust dough, wrap and refrigerate until firm for one hour. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Pinch off tablespoons of dough and roll into short ropes. Bend into crescent moon shapes on baking sheets, leaving about two inches between cookies.

Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly browned. Mix confectioners’ sugar and vanilla sugar together, then toss the hot cookies in the mix. Carefully roll warm cookies in the vanilla sugar.
You can store the cookies in a sealed tin for several days.

 

Makes around 30 cookies!

 

These are perfect as I said before to bring to a new years eve gathering or just a simple gift to someone !

 

Enjoy them and I’ll see you all soon !
