Vanilla Wreath Cookies

Bakers, please note that these cookies come out of the oven soft and will only harden once cold.

Makes approximately 75

Ingredients:

50 grams of almonds (blanched)
165 grams of cold butter
220 grams of flour
110 grams of sugar
1/2 an egg
1/2 the content of a vanilla bean or the equivalent essence or vanilla sugar.

Instructions:

Run the almonds through a food processor or chop until completely fine.

Cut the cold butter into small pieces and mix with the flour (should look a bit like grated cheese)

Add sugar, egg, vanilla and almonds.

Mix the dough as quickly as possible. Touch it as little as you can or use a stand mixer if you have one.

Let it rest at least 1 hour in the fridge.

Roll the dough into ‘little finger’ thick “snakes”.

Cut into 7 cm long pieces and shape into a circle or “wreath”.

Bake the cookies at 200 C at the top of the oven for 7-10 min.

Note: These cookies are traditionally made with a speciality tool that presses the dough through a “star shape” to make them look more like a wreath when baked. Luckily the shape doesn’t affect the taste 😛

Merry Christmas
Love, Tea
