Christmas is just around the corner and many of us are busy preparing or creating Christmas presents. Some of them must have been busy baking cookies and other sweet treats. But what would Christmas be without the well-known and popular Vanilla crescents . We at the Salzburger Grain Mills are always happy to share recipes with you and are always open to ideas, comments or requests. Just write us a message firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here is our vanilla croissant recipe for you:
- 150 g whole wheat flour (fresh and very finely ground with your Salzburg flour mill )
- 150 g hazelnuts (ground, but not with your flour mill!)
- 90 g of sugar
- 150 g butter
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 pack of vanilla sugar
- Icing sugar for sprinkling
First of all, the freshly ground whole wheat flour with one fine sieve seven. Then for the shortcrust pastry, put all the ingredients together in a bowl and knead until the dough is uniform. Then put them in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. It would be best if the dough was chilled overnight.
Then preheat the oven to 180 ° C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Now cut larger pieces of the shortcrust pastry and form rolls that are approx. 3-4 cm in diameter. Cut off approx. 3 cm pieces from the rolls and shape them into croissants.
Place the vanilla crescents on the baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they turn lightly brown. Then let it cool down and turn in icing sugar.
We wish you all the best with your baking!
See you soon and have a nice time before Christmas,
the team of the Salzburg grain mills
