Vanilla Wreaths


These can be made with a meat grinder if if you don’t have one a pipping bag with a star shaped nozzle.

The portion is not very big, I suggest doubling it.

  • 100 grams almonds blanched
  • 330 grams butter cold
  • 500 grams flour 800 ml
  • 220 grams sugar 250 ml
  • 1 egg
  • 1 vanilla pod


  1. Chop the almonds finely - without them turning into paste. That makes the dough much easier to work with.
  2. Combine the flour and butter.
  3. Add the sugar, egg, vanilla and almonds.
  4. Put the dough in the fridge until it is cold. Do not freze it. Take it out about half an hour before you want to make them.
  5. Put the dough though the meat grinder, cut it into chunks before hands - it makes it easy to work with.
  6. Form the sauceges into wreaths and set them down on a baking tray with paper on it.
