Nothing beats the rich, buttery aroma of baked home-made sweet treats

Pistachio Kipferl

Pistachio Kipferl by Dalia Dogmouch

Prep & bake time: 45 minutes
Makes: ~ 60

200g butter
100g icing sugar
½ tsp salt
2 tsp pure vanilla essence or rose water
~200g flour sifted
150g finely ground pistachios
Icing sugar to dust

  1. In a bowl, cream the butter, icing sugar, salt and vanilla using a hand or electric mixer.
  2. Gradually add the flour and the ground pistachios. The dough should be dry enough for you to form crescents, so if it is too wet add a little more flour.
  3. Place the Kipferl on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  4. Preheat the oven to 180c. Chill the cookies in the fridge for at least 10 minutes before baking them for 12-15 minutes, just until they start to brown.
  5. Once the Kipferl is cooled, dust them with icing sugar.
