This traditional Austrian cookie is a staple in our home at Christmas time....simple and ooooh so good!

Vanillekipferl (Almond Crescents)
Although they are enjoyed throughout the year, these cookies are essential in every Austrian family's Christmas cookie repertoire.

Ingredients

1 cup ground almonds
1/3 cup sugar
1 package vanilla sugar or 1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cup cold butter
Topping:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 package vanilla sugar (if possible)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Blend flour, sugar, almonds, and vanilla. Cut in cold butter and work quickly into a smooth dough. Shape into rolls having the diameter of a pencil, then cut into 2-inch pieces. Form into crescents. Bake 15 to 20 minutes.

Yields: 100 cookies
