Nutritional values

The smart butter biscuits get their delicious taste from the different spices, which also have a positive effect on our health. Cinnamon, for example, is discussed in connection with diabetes. So far there are no definite recommendations, but there are some indications that the spice can help with type 2 diabetes. Vanilla stimulates the production of happiness hormones, in other words, it makes us feel good. In addition, essential oils are said to be able to kill fungi and bacteria and thus support the immune system.

Give the butter cookies an individual taste by adding, for example, grated lemon or orange peel, some very finely chopped ginger or apple to the dough. You can cut out the cookies in the shape you want. If you don't have a cookie cutter, you can use a drinking glass to cut out circles.

Kitchen utensils

1 Rolling pin, 1 Anchor- Cookie cutter

Preparation steps


Sift the flour and baking powder onto a work surface. Mix sugar with cinnamon and salt and spread it on top. Cut butter into small pieces and spread on the flour mixture. Halve the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the vanilla pulp with a knife.


Add vanilla pulp to the flour mixture and beat the eggs in the middle. Quickly work into a smooth dough with your hands. Add a little cold water if necessary. Wrap in a damp kitchen towel and chill for 1 hour.


Then divide the dough into 2 parts on a lightly floured work surface, knead again. Roll out thinly one after the other and use cutters to cut out anchors. Spread these out on baking trays covered with baking paper.


Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C/ 350°F (convection 160 °C/ 325°F) for about 8-10 minutes in succession until golden brown. Remove from the oven, remove from the baking tray with the baking paper and allow to cool.
