Vanillekipferl (vanilla croissants) are Austrian crescent shaped Christmas biscuits. They are usually made with ground almonds or hazelnuts and get their typical flavour from a heavy dusting of vanilla sugar. They are said to have been created in the shape of the Turkish crescent to celebrate the victory of the Hungarian army over the Turkish in one of the many wars between the nations.
