1pkg. vanilla sugar
And this is how you make the biscuits:
On a flat surface, combine the flour, room-temperature butter, nuts, sugar, and vanilla sugar to make a dough. Form 4 to 5 rolls from the dough, cut into thin pieces, shape them into croissants, and put them onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 180°C for 5 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with vanilla sugar while still warm and enjoy.
Tip: After 3 to 4 days, Gerti Singer’s Vanillekipferl biscuits are especially delicious.
