- 60 g almond meal - ground almonds
- 50 g wholemeal atta flour or plain flour
- 70 g dairy free margarine
- 30 g raw sugar
- 1/2 x vanilla pot
- 1-2 cup icing sugar
Mix all ingredients, exept of the icing sugar and vanilla sugar, into a bowl and make the dough. Knet with your fingertips the flour and margarine together and then knet to a firm dough. Roll into cling wrap and put into the fridge for about 1,5 hours.
Get the dough out of the fridge and start to form some “Kipferls” — preheat your oven to 170C° and bake for 10 min.
Start to make the icing mix — mix icing sugar with a lot of vanilla sugar — when the Kipferls are ready — add them in the bowl and cover well with the sugar. Don’t let the Kipferl cool down — put them into the icing mix when still hot — thats the best way to cover them and get the most of the delicous vanilla flavour!
When ready, put the cookies into a metal box — this way they will stay fresh and crunchy!
I hope you love my Christmas Kipferl same as I love — this really brings back childhood memories and the taste also simply is adorable. ENJOY

I am making similar christmas cookies and they all always very yummy.Merry Christmas.
Thanks so much Anna — just checked your recipe — you use walnuts — I will try that as well. My mum often also used hazelnut meal, but I prefer the almond meal
Hi Angela.You know,you can keep the Christmas cookies in freezer for one year?just in tight container and when you put it on a plate they are just as you cooked them now.
