Vanilla Crecents
  • 100g margarine(vegan)
  • 30g sugar
  • 1sachet vanilla sugar
  • 125g flour
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 0.5tsp locust bean gum
Vanilla Sugar Coating
  • 2sachets vanilla sugar
  • 20g sugar
  • 2tbsp icing sugar
  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.
  4. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  5. 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.
  6. Once all the dough is crescent-shaped and oven ready, bake it for 10 minutes at 175°C.
  7. Meanwhile, mix together the remaining sugar, vanilla sugar and icing sugar in a bowl.
  8. As soon as the crescents come out of the oven, top them with the vanilla sugar mixture!
