Vanillekipferl rank high up there with all my other favourite German Christmas cookies (it's so hard to choose a favourite!). The combination of rich vanilla bean seeds, together with the crumbly texture of the dough and the dusted icing sugar on top that melts instantly in your mouth, combine perfectly for what could probably be one the best cookie inventions ever.
Check back Wednesday, when I'll be posting my grandmother's recipe for my (new) absolute favourite - Pfeffernüsse!
