Vanilias Kifli

Vanilias Kifli is a very famour cookie from Hungary which is normally made during Christmas or New year time. They are dangerously addictive and extremely delicious. he word "vaníliás" refers to the vanilla flavor used while the world "kifli" stands for the crescent shape of the cookies.

While I was making a list of recipes for this mega marathon, I zeroed in on Vanilias kifli for 'V' and noted down the link. But while making this recipe, I only read the ingredients and instructions and didn't bother to read the introduction since I was running short of time. I have a new set of cookie shaper so all the more interest in making the cookies with this shaper. So as usual I made these cookies in my own way and shaped them into nice rounds. Later, while doing this write-up I read about this recipe and found out that kifli means crescent-shaped. Lessons learnt - read the complete post about a recipe. Hopefully my blogger friends would accept this round shaped crescents.

Recipe Source: Veggieplatter

  • Cream the butter and the sugar. Blend in almonds and flour. 
  • Mix the flour and make it into a nice round ball.

  • With a cookie shaper, cut the cookies.
  • Alternatively, Take small pieces of the mixture and roll between the palms of the hands, then form into crescents
