And here we go! Welcome to Day 1 of our Winter Celebration 2021. We're so excited you are joining us!
We're kicking off our Winter Celebration with a little something sweet from Hanna Lisa, her Vanillekipferl. Don't they look delicious?
Baking is something we both love to do, not only at Winter but all year round. There is something special about cozying up on a chilly winter day with a hot mug of tea and a tasty cookie though. If you're craving a little home-baking, I invite you to try these out! I promise you, you won't be disappointed!

Hanna Lisa's Vanillekipferl
200 g | 2 1/2 cups flour (both wheat or spelt work well)
175 g | 1 3/4 cups butter
100 g | generous 1/2 cup ground almonds
80 g | scant 1/2 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
Vanilla bean seeds, scraped from 1 vanilla bean
A pinch of salt
10 sachets vanilla sugar (or enough to coat the cookies)
Combine all ingredients except for the vanilla sugar in a big bowl.
Using the dough hooks of your food processor or mixer, knead them into a smooth dough.
Shape dough into two long logs, wrap them in clingfilm or beeswax wraps and place them in the fridge for 2 hrs.
Heat oven to 180°C (160°C Umluft) | 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut each log into approx. 35 slices, shape them into balls, roll them into mini-logs and then shape them into little half-moon / croissant shapes. Place them on the baking sheet.
Bake for approx. 15 min - they shouldn't get too dark!
While the cookies are in the oven, put the vanilla sugar onto a big plate.
Take the cookies out and roll them carefully - while they're still warm - in the vanilla sugar.
