Vanillekipferl with Thermomix: Christmas Biscuits

Vanillekipferl are typical German Christmas biscuits.

Their name hints they have a Vanilla taste and they are crescent shaped.

You may put them in transparent plastic bags and seal them with a ribbon. You could make a beautiful Christmas gift for your son's teachers.


- 30 g of Almonds
- 30 g of Hazelnuts
- 50 g of Sugar
- 110 g of Butter
- 1 Yolk
- 2 tsp of Vanilla Sugar ( + as much as needed to cover the surface)
- 130 g of Flour

How to Prepare Vanillekipferl

Put almonds and nuts in your Thermomix bowl. 10 Sec. Speed Turbo.

Gather and add sugar. 5 Sec. Speed Turbo.

Gather with the spatula and add the other ingredients. 1 Min. Dough Mode.

Make a ball of the pastry, wrap it with a dishcloth and let it rest in the fridge for about 2 hours.

After 2 hours, create thick snake shapes and make crescent moon biscuits. Tips should be thinner.

Put biscuits on a baking pan with greaseproof paper. Bake 10-15 Min. 175°C.

Unfortunately I got my biscuits too much browned because while they were cooking, one of my daughters woke up and I lost the perfect cooking moment. It happens!

However they were absolutely yummy! My little girls ate them all in a flash.
