Grandma's Vanille Kipferln

Ingredients: 1 1/4 C flour 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature 1 cup finely ground almonds or walnuts 1/3 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla powdered vanilla sugar as needed Preparing the cookies: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Knead together the flour, butter, almonds, granulated sugar and vanilla until the dough comes together and can be shaped into 1-inch-thick rolls. Chill briefly if the dough seems too soft to cut. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces and shape into crescents by bending the pieces and tapering the ends. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 20 minutes, until the cookies are light gold in color. Let cool on the baking sheet, then roll in the powdered sugar. Vanilla Sugar: At least a day or two before baking, cut 1 vanilla bean open lengthwise and combine with 1 cup powdered sugar in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. You may not need all the sugar for this recipe. Store any leftover sugar in its jar, at room temperature.
