In this class we’ll sketch some traditional Christmas cookies or biscuits with a recipe that comes all the way from Vienna, the place of birth of my mother-in-law Erika. Every year my family and I made a trip to London to stay with her for a few days and we were always greeted with a hot cup of tea and a “vanilla kipferl” in her beautiful cosy home.

Now the younger generation makes them – in particular by Erika’s grandchildren – and the tradition is passed on. In fact, photos are shared in the family Whatsapp group, where Erika’s children and their spouses silently decide the ones made by their own teen are the best!

Once you try these you’ll never look back. Dusted with vanilla-infused icing sugar on the crunchy outside, soft and almondy on the inside, I love them.

My aim is to make a fresh drawing in time for class – my husband is baking them as I write – so hopefully I will come up with an illustrated recipe with a truly Viennese flavour!
