Vanilla Kipferl

Ingredients for about 30:
240g cake flour
180g cold butter
60g icing sugar
100g ground pumpkin seeds
a pinch of salt
For rolling 1 tsp vanilla sugar and icing sugar.


Sieve the flour and mix it with icing sugar, salt and ground pumpkin seeds. Cut the cold butter into pieces, add it to the flour mixture, knead it to a glossy dough quickly and form the dough into a roll. After chilling (at least one hour), cut it into pieces of same size and shape them into nice crescents. Place them on a greased baking sheet and bake the crescents at 180°C until light brown. Dust them in a mixture of icing sugar and vanilla sugar while still warm.
