Merry christmas

I wish you all a merry christmas. I hope you all have a or lots of tasty meal(s), get nice presents and most important I hope you have fun and are able to enjoy the holidays, even if the christmas time is this time on saturday and sunday 😉 I cooked the beef olives (recipe is already in the blog) with selfmade stock (I really recommend to you to cook your stock and not buy one in the supermarket)
As a small christmas gift, I will share a nice Vanillekipferl (cookies in the form of a croissant that has a vanilla taste) variation recipe: A recipe for nougat kipferl.
The good thing about Vanillekipferl is that they look good, but you can make them very easily in a small amont of time. And, of course, they taste really good. I must admit, I usually do not like cookies. But for christmas I wanted to make some, so I searched for cookies that even I will like. Since chocolate is always good in cookies I decided on the tasty Nougatkipfel.

For approx. 60 pieces you need:

250 g flour
150 g butter
125 g sugar
100 g nougat (you can also take nougat chocolate)
3 egg yolk (Eigelb)
a bit baking powder (approx. 1/2 teaspoon)

As topping:
3 packages vanilla sugar
3 tablespoon sugar

First cut the nougat in small (I suggest as small as possible, because then the mixing of the dough takes less time). Mix the nougat, flour, butter, sugar, egg yolk and baking powder together until you get a dough. Put the dough for about 30-60 minutes into the fridge. Make a approx. 2 cm small roll and cut this into approx. 2 cm small pieces. Form each of the pieces in croissant form. Bake the pieces for about 10-15 minutes in the oven (175 degrees). They are ready when they turned light brown. Let them cool down for about 5 minutes. In the meantime mix vanilla sugar with sugar and roll the Kipferl (they must be still a bit warm) in the sugar mix.
