Vanillekipferl - Vanilla Crescent Cookies

I do not know about your school, but here in Portland our kids have one late day a month.  It means that school starts two hours later than usual.  All of us generally enjoy the extra time in the morning and today was just such a day.

A late day, and is there not a better thing to do than bake cookies in the morning? Well, I had actually made the dough a couple days ahead and just pulled it out of the fridge.  So that is what we did.  We rolled, and shaped crescent cookies.  Baked them, and sprinkled them with a vanilla-sugar mixture.  Oh, and just in case you wondered - they are completely Galactosemia safe :)

  7. Roll the slices and form a crescent
  8. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper
  9. Bake at 375 F for about 9-10 minutes
