2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup sugar
1 pkg vanilla sugar
1 cup butter, cold
1 cup icing sugar
3 pkg vanilla sugar
Preheat the oven to 300F
Grease a cookie sheet or use parchment paper.
Blend flour, ground almonds, sugar, and vanilla sugar together in a large bowl or on a pastry board.
Cut cold butter into small pieces over dry ingredients.
Work together like you would pastry until you get a smooth dough that doesn't stick to your hands.
Roll a small amount of dough into pencil like strips.
Cut into small rolls about 2 inches in length.
Place on baking sheet, and shape into crescents.
Bake at 300F for 10 to 15 minutes, or until lightly golden.
Sprinkle warm cookies with icing sugar and vanilla sugar mixture, and let cool.
Store in an airtight container.
(Makes about 3 dozen cookies)
A favourite at my Tetka's house for Slava....I finally have the recipe.
