Vanilla Wreaths – 1890

Vaniljekranse

Traditional Danish Christmas cookies. This version is formed by hand, which means they do not have the typical shape. They are however easier to make if you don’t have a meat grinder.

The original recipe from 1890

3/4 pund mel æltes på brættet med 1/2 pund smør, 1/2 pund hvidt sukker, 1/2 pund skoldende og hakkede mandler, 1 teskefuld hjortetakssalt, opløst i lidt rosenvand, og 1/2 stang vanilje. Når det er æltet godt sammen, tager man et stykke dej, triller den ud på brættet med mel uden for vægten og danner den til kranse, som bages lysebrune. Heraf bliver omkring 60.

I am yet to test these.
