Vanilla Rings-Vaniljekranse

Vanilla rings are the Classic and most loved Danish cookie. Years ago, this cookie was made with the help of a meat grinder attachment on their  kitchen machine. Not many people have this type of kitchen machine anymore and now  we use a piping bag with a star nozzle. If you can’t buy ground almonds, here is a simple way to remove the skins of the almonds. Place almonds in boiling Water and let dem Cook a minute, but no more. Drain the water off, pat them dry. Take an almond and place it between your thumb and index finger and push the skin off. If you do it right, it will pop off. Sometimes flying across the kitchen. It is fast and easy.
