Soft, fragrant, delicious, these cookies melt in your mouth and are the most beautiful vanilici I have tasted, they are perfect, and the recipe is from my grandmother's archive with a little modification from me. From this amount, you get 20 vanilici, if you want more, double or triple the dose.

  • 200 g flour
  • 100 g of lard
  • 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g crushed nuts (almonds or hazelnuts)
  • 1 small egg
  • 2-3 tbs of yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar+more for dipping the cookiesa pinch of mix of cardamon, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in powder
  1. Mix dough of all ingredients and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  2. Then roll out a crust on an oiled surface to a thickness of 1.5 cm and take out forms using a cup or a glass. 
  3. Place on an oiled pan.
  4. Bake at 180 C degrees for about 20 minutes or until browned.
  5. When you have removed them from the oven, leave them in the pan for 2-3 minutes and then gently take one by one cookie and dip in powdered sugar to which you have added 1 sachet of vanilla sugar.
  6. Do it slowly because cookies are very gentle and can easily break. You can servet them immediately.
  7. Keep them in a tin box.
