I enjoy baking, however have always been a bit intimidated to bake Croatian cakes! I mean, it’s taken me 8 years to make my first Croatian cake unsupervised. I decided to start out with something simple and easy. We had a Dalmatian BBQ to go to so it was the perfect reason to try and make Croatian Vanilla Kiflice. I could bring 1 batch to the party and leave 1 batch at home for the family to enjoy.
I searched around for recipes and found the most easy to follow recipe (definitely for a first-timer) at Chasing the Donkey https://www.chasingthedonkey.com/croatian-cooking-vanilin-kiflice-recipe-vanilla-crescent-cookies/ Chasing the Donkey, thank you for an awesome recipe!
I had most of the ingredients at home and only really had to go to the shops for the walnuts! As I continue to make Croatian cakes, walnuts will be a staple in the pantry.
I’ve added some notes and photos of my experience making these delicious easy-to-make vanilla kiflice to the recipe from Chasing the Donkey below.
Makes approx. 40 cookies dependant on the size of your cookies (Uppermoda note: I doubled the recipe to have a batch for the party and a batch for home.)
Note: There is a cookie press for a similar shape of cookies so if you have one at home feel free to use it.
One more suggestion before the end, as you can see in this recipe there is no egg yolk. If you wish to use an egg yolk you can – you will get a dough that is much easier to work with but the cookies will not be as light and mouthwatering.
Write in the comments below your feedback on this recipe or about your experience making kiflice! We would love to hear from you!
Because we have been asked, I have included the Uppermoda items we sell in this video ❤️
