This colour challenge came just at the right time. I was desperately seaching for a colour scheme for my receipe card swap. And then I saw the colours red, white and aqua. And there was the idea! Thank you girls for this inspiration.
This is what I made out of it!
- Circle Punch - Stampin' up
- Branch Punch - Martha Stewart
- 2 snwoflake Punches - manufacturer unknown
- Coloured cardstock - SU
- Shimmering paper
What you can't really see from the picture the receipe is written in red colour! It just looks perfect!
Thanks for looking!
Just for those interested in the receipe. Here it is in full:
Vanilla Almond Kipferl
For the dough:
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar (or equivalent of vanilla flavor)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of finely ground almonds
1 cup of (soft) butter or margarine
Powdered sugar for dredging
Produce a homogenous dough (either by hand or with help of dough hooks) of all the dough ingredients. Wrap the dough into plastic wrap and put into the fridge (at least one hour).
Take the dough out and knead it quickly. Then form rolls approx. 2 1/2 inches long with a diameter of approx. 1/2 inch. Place them in a crescent shape on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Leave enough space between the individual cresents because they tend to expand during the baking process.
Bake the crescents in the pre-heated oven at approx. 350° F for 15 to 18 minutes. Please observe them carefully gey get burnt very easily!
Dredge them with powderes sugar when still warm!
Store them in a tin or plastic box and enjoy!
