Vanilla crescents are a traditional Christmas sweets and are made as one of the first candy because they need to mature. It’s good to have them done at least two weeks in advance.

Chilled and sliced fat slices knead together with icing sugar and flour, add egg yolk, vanilla sugar, cinnamon and ground nuts and knead a smooth dough. Then let it rest in the refrigerator wrapped in cling film so it doesn’t grow crusty.

From the dough tear off pieces which you then roll into classic horn shapes and place them on either buttered baking sheet or on baking paper.

We put in the oven at 180 ° C until it becomes pinkish. After the take out, encase in a mixture of powdered sugar and vanillin and let cool.

Vanilla crescents should be first step into your christmas holidays.
