Old-fashioned vanilla almond half-moons

Soft almond half-moons baked according to a recipe from an old cookbook.

7 oz
1 ⅓ cups
plain flour
3.5 oz
ground almonds
½ cup
powdered sugar
2 pcs
egg yolk
for coating
powdered sugar
for coating
vanilla sugar
Preparation steps
  1. Cut the butter into small cubes or grate it and mix all the ingredients with your hands in a bowl.
  2. On a floured surface, make a bun out of the dough and let it cool for an hour or two.
  3. Then transfer the dough onto a floured roll, form a long roll with your hands, cut it into equal pieces and quickly make a half-moon from each one with your hands.
  4. Place the half-moons on a baking sheet lined with baking paper (do not place too close to each other). I baked at 355 °F / 180 C° for about 8-10 minutes (follow your oven - every oven bakes differently).
  5. The half-moons should remain nice and white even after baking - light brown only on the bottom. Let them cool on the baking sheet for a while (they are very fragile after baking) and while they are still warm, roll them in powdered sugar mixed with vanilla sugar.
