These delicious morsels with a fine vanilla flavour are just the biscuit on a cosy Christmas evening.


For the dough:
220 g Mix C - Mix Pâtisserie
60-80 g icing sugar
1 pinch/es of salt
2 vanilla pods
3 packages bourbon vanilla sugar
50 g Paniermehl - Breadcrumbs

  • Mix all the dry ingredients for the dough in a mixing bowl.
  • Now add the remaining ingredients and quickly bring together into a short dough.
  • Wrap the dough in cling film and rest for approx. 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Preheat the 170°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • With cold hands, shape pieces of the dough into little crescent shapes and space them out on the baking tray.
  • Bake in the oven for approx. 10 – 12 minutes.
  • Important! Leave the crescents to cool on the tray, otherwise they will crumble.
  • Mix the sugar and vanilla sugar in a shallow bowl.
