- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon Dry yeast
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 5 tablespoons milk
- 25 grams butter
- 1 small egg
- 30 grams ground almonds

For the dough, mix flour with salt, dry yeast and sugar. Pour in warm milk and add butter and egg. Knead all with kneading hook of a hand mixer into a smooth, pliable dough. Let sit for approximately 15–20 minutes covered in a warm place.
Knead dough briefly and shape into walnut-sized balls. Roll balls in ground almonds and place in a shallow baking dish with space in between. Sprinkle balls with sliced almonds and let rise for 15 minutes. Bake in middle of preheated oven at 200°C (approximately 400°F) for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and chop strawberries. Mix strawberries with vanilla sugar, place alongside almond balls and serve dusted with powdered sugar.
