14th door of the Advent calendar


  • 250 g cornflour
  • 250 g soft butter
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 100 g flour
  • 1 vanilla pod


Beat the butter, icing sugar and the scraped out pulp of the vanilla pod until fluffy.

Mix the cornflour and flour together and gradually stir in.

Shape the dough into a roll, cut off evenly sized pieces and form into balls, flatten a little with a floured fork and bake at 200°C, middle shelf, for 10-12 minutes.

Carefully lift the snowflakes from the baking sheet and let them cool down.

Store in a closed container for 3-4 days before eating.
