1. In a bowl put the flour then add the ground walnuts, vanilla sugar, 1 egg white and the butter (add touch of water if need be)

2. With your hands mix together, try to do it quickly as warm hands will help melt the butter

3. Once it is mixed then shape it into an elongated ball and cut into 4 even pieces

4. Each piece roll into a sausage shape and then cut into 2cm wide pieces – then with each piece shape them into a kiflice

5. Place the kiflice on baking paper (sprinkled with flour)

6. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 150°C

7. Take them out and plate them – sprinkle with icing sugar and enjoy!
