It’s been sometime since I’ve last posted a recipe. Now that it’s Christmas time and we’re in the middle of winter, I’d like to share with you a very nice cookie. It’s called Vanillekipferl, it’s an austrian cookie that is just perfect and right for winter. It’s a nice gift to give to anyone, a box full of these cookies will have someobdy with a smile all through winter !
I hope you all can try them.
150g ground almonds
175g butter, cut into small cubes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 packet vanilla sugar
2 egg yolks
confectioners’ sugar and vanilla sugar for rolling and dusting
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 !
A few days ago I made a crêpes recipe and posted it here, and today I shall post you the American version! The big pancake!
I personally prefer crêpes, because they permit you to do more things with them. But these are also great for breakfasts… who doesn’t dream every night of waking up by the smell of pancakes?
This recipe is classical, meaning it doesn’t have any added ingredient to give the pancake a little twist!
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you pancakes!
1-1/2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup of melted butter
1 tablespoon of oil
Combine milk with the oil and set aside.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs and butter into the milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with butter. Pour the batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.
These are great with almost anything.. I wouldn’t with fish.. but almost anything else!!! The best combination is fresh orange juice, pancakes, and someone you love to share them with.
