Vanillekipferl with Thermomix: Christmas Biscuits

Vanillekipferl with Thermomix 

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.

The first time I made them, 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.

And so they asked me to do them a lot of times ...


- 30 g almonds
- 30 g hazelnuts
- 50 g white sugar
- 110 g unsalted butter
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tsp of vanilla sugar ( + as much as needed to cover the surface)
- 130 g plain flour

Let's cook

Put 30 g almonds and 30 g hazelnuts in your mixing bowl and mix slightly 10 Sec. Speed Turbo.

Collect in the center with the spatula and add 50 g white sugar. Mix 5 Sec. Speed Turbo.

Collect in the center with the spatula and add 110 g unsalted butter, 1 egg yolk, 2 tsp of vanilla sugar, 130 g plain flour. Mix 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 backing paper. Bake 10-15 Min. 175C.
