oh these cookies will make your hearts melt! I should have posted them a lot earlier!

They look like nothing, plain, simple, even boring. But the taste - oh the taste, if you like vanilla, these will be your liking!



Vanilla Thaler

250 g butter
1-2 vanilla beans
300 g sugar
375 g all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 large egg

in a pan melt and slowly brown the butter. This will take about 15 minutes, so don't rush. Now pour butter through a sifter and let cool a little.
Cut the vanilla lengthwise and scrape the seeds into the cooling butter. When the butter is firm again add sugar and whisk for 5 minutes until it's white and creamy.
Mix flour and baking powder and add to the butter-mix. Also add the egg and mix well until a dough starts to form.
Put dough on plastic wrap, form rolls of about 3cm / 1.25 inches n diameter and let cool in fridge for 2 hours. (over night is fine too).
cut rolls and place cookies on a baking sheet. Bake in pre-heated oven for 14 minutes at 180°C.
[in the picture below I used my 1 teaspoon scoop to form single portions, which I then rolled between my palms into balls and pressed down a little with my thumb. The rest went into the fridge and later onto the baking sheet]
let cool on rack and enjoy!!


season greetings, Diana
