  • 25 g fat
  • 2 g baker’s yeast
  • 50 g flour
  • 8 g sugar
  • 1 package of vanilla sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1,5-2 dl sour cream


First, stir the fat for 10-15 minutes until it becomes creamy and frothy. Add the baker’s yeast and stir it again. Next, sift the flour and mix it with the vanilla sugar and the salt. After this, add the mixture to the fat but, while adding it, continue to stir the fat. After a while, the result is a perfect amount of dough. When it is ready, put it into a fridge for the night.

The next day, take the dough out of the fridge and roll it out until it is approximately 1 mm thick. Take a doughnut paste-cutter and cut the dough into round forms. Fill the round forms with nuts, poppy seeds, and chestnut. After filling it shape the round form into the shape of a crescent. Bake it for 10 minutes but be careful because it bakes quickly as the dough of the crescent is thin. If it is ready, decorate it with white sugar.

Bon Appetit!
