Vanilla half-moons

Isn't it about time that you surprised all of the neighbours who have, for years, been brining you vanilla half-moons for the holidays?

That's right – bake some yourself! It is very simple and Christmas just would not be the same without them. Plus, there will come a time when the neighbour with the half-moons will no longer be around and you might be the one that will have to take up the role of "moon-dealer".

 

Ingredients for 40-50 pieces:

For the dough:

150 g white smooth flour

150g hard flour

200g butter

80 g granulated sugar

100g ground walnuts

1 egg white

 

For sprinkling:

80 g of powdered sugar

20 g vanilla sugar

Preparation:

Sift hard and plain flour in a suitable bowl, add sugar, ground walnuts and vanilla sugar. Mix the ingredients. Then add butter cubes and mix with your fingers until you get a mixture resembling breadcrumbs. Next, add egg whites to the mixture and mix well once more. Move the dough to a floured worktop, flour it some more and knead into dough sausages, approx. 2 cm thick. Thus formed, cut the dough into 5 to 6 cm long pieces, fold them into half-moons and move to a suitable baking tray covered with baking paper. Bake for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 220°C. When baked, roll the half-moons in a mixture of vanilla sugar and powdered sugar.

Jesse Eisenberg (actor) spent the autumn in Zagreb in 2007: Zagreb is an incredible town. I enjoyed sightseeing the old parts of the town, and at night I went to clubs. I was thrilled that it was near Austria and Italy, so I visited Venice, Milan, Ljubljana, Graz, Split... over the weekends.
