Delicate Vanillekipferl cookies

4050 Min

Just like snow to the winter time, Vanillekipferl cookies belong to the holiday season! Here we'll show you how to make your own wonderfully crumbly cookies. And they're finished off with original bourbon vanilla sugar, of course!

Ingredients 4 Portions


  1. 1

    On a work surface, knead the sieved flour, powdered sugar, lemon peel, butter, walnuts and a pinch of salt into a smooth dough.

  2. 2

    Shape into a sausage, cover and leave to rest in the refrigerator for one hour.

  3. 3

    Shape the dough into small balls and mold into crescent shapes.

  4. 4

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Place the cookies on a baking sheet and bake for around 15 minutes until golden.

  5. 5

    Combine the vanilla sugar and powdered sugar and toss the cookies in the sugar mixture while still warm.


    Replace the butter with margarine for a vegan version!
