Although holidays are over, I had a few requests for this yummy cookies recipe. It's one of those "melt in your mouth cookies," very delicate, and pairs perfectly with your favorite cup of tea. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as we have.
It's never too late to make a cookie!
2 1/2 cups (300g) flour
1 cup (120g) ground walnuts
1/2 cup (60g) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 oz. (150g) unsalted butter
1 cup confectioners sugar
Mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl using a hand mixer or a stand mixer with paddle attachment.
Add ground walnuts and flour to the butter mix, and quickly knead a firm dough.
Divide the dough into quarters and form four rolls, each one about 2 to 3cm.
Flour the worktop and cut the rolls into slices (about as thick as a finger) and form little crescents.
Put a Kifli on a greased baking sheet, or a sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake at 160°C / 320°F in a pre-heated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. Or until golden brown.
Fill the confection sugar into a small bowl and dust the Kifli while they are still warm.
Let the cookies cool completely on a cooling rack.
