Vanilla Crescents – Heavenly Christmas Biscuit {VEGAN}

Christmas is coming closer and closer. It clearly is time for one of the best traditional Christmas biscuits EVER! Is it okay that I have eaten an entire batch already? I just couldn’t resist!

Christmas: Vegan Vanilla Crescents

Can you believe that we had the first snow already here in Germany? I am so hoping to finally have a white Christmas again!

The printable recipe is below! Please tag me on Instagram @fondofflavour in case you make these!

Equipment

Baking tray, lined with parchment paper

Christmas: Vegan Vanilla Crescents

Ingredients (30 Vanilla Crescents)

100 g     margarine (vegan)

30 g        sugar

1             sachet of vanilla sugar

125 g     flour

100 g     ground almonds

½ tsp     locust bean gum

 

2             sachets of vanilla sugar

20 g        sugar

2 tbsp   icing sugar

Christmas: Vegan Vanilla Crescents

Instructions

  1. Cream together margarine, sugar and vanilla sugar until pale.
  2. Add the ground almonds, flour and locust bean gum and mix until everything is combined well.
  3. Wrap the lump of dough in cling film and leave it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 175°C.

  1. Now the time intensive part begins: start forming crescents with your hands! In order to this, form a ball in your hands (because I have a light tendency to being a perfectionist, I actually weighed the dough parts and they were 10-12 grams each). Form this into a crescent shaped biscuit and place it onto the baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  2. Once all the dough is crescent-shaped and oven ready, bake it for 10 minutes at 175°C.
  3. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining sugar, vanilla sugar and icing sugar in a bowl.
  4. As soon as the crescents come out of the oven, top them with the vanilla sugar mixture!
