  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 250g
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1 cup finely ground almond packed (100g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 150 g vegan butter cold and cut in small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons plant milk

To Garnish

  • powder sugar


  • In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Add the vanilla and the cold cubed butter and combine using a dough scraper (or two butter knives). Once the butter is distributed and coated with the flour, process with your hands. If the mix is too dry, add up to 2 tablespoons of plant milk. Work with your hands until you're able to form a rough ball. Try not to overwork it.
    Mixing the Vanillekipferl
  • Divide into two and shape two rolls. Pleace them at the opposite ends of a parchment paper a wrap each one towards the center where they'll meet. Fold the ends of the paper underneath and refrigerate at least 30 minutes to an hour.
    dividing the dough
  • Once the dough cold and hard, take one roll out at a time. Cut into 12 to 15 equal pieces, roll each between your ends to form a smaller roll with smaller ends and form a crescent. Place on a prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350F (180C), it must be fully preheated before baking the cookies 12 to 15 minutes, depending on their size, until their ends are a bit golden.
  • Let cool 1 minute before dusting generously with powdered sugar.


You can freeze the dough rolls and bake later.
