" This kifli (loosely meaning ‘biscuit’) recipe came from Kati, who was given the recipe by her mother’s mother in (the former) Yugoslavia. She has now passed them on to me and my children. The almond kifli are a delightfully buttery, nutty and crumbly biscuit.” Sharon Vidor

Almond Kifli
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line two large baking trays
  2. Mix together the ground almonds, butter, flour and vanilla caster sugar by hand until a dough is formed, taking care not to overwork the dough. This can also be done in a food processor
  3. Roll the dough into small thumb-sized rolls and bend slightly into crescent shapes. Place on the prepared trays and bake for 30-40 minutes until pale golden
  4. Make the vanilla icing sugar by sifting together the icing sugar and ground vanilla powder
  5. When cool, roll in the vanilla icing sugar. Store in an airtight container with any excess vanilla icing sugar tipped on top of the biscuits
Tips & Hints:
  • Note: To make vanilla (caster) sugar, store a split vanilla bean (it can be one from which the seeds have been removed for another dish) in 1kg caster sugar in a container. Shake vigorously and allow the vanilla flavour to permeate for at least 1 week before using. Seal the container until ready to use. Lasts for months
