I’ll begin with a recipe, but stay tuned to the end for links to other amazing Undertale fan recipes!
Today we’re making snowman pieces! Take these with you on your journey to make a snowman (and whoever you share them with) very happy.
This recipe is essentially my grandmother’s Vanillekipferl recipe. Vanillekipferl are an almond cookie, usually crescent shaped, that end up being everyone’s favorite at Christmas. It’s a very easy recipe with a really yummy payoff, so give it a try!
SNOWMAN PIECES (VANILLEKIPFERL)
Yields: 12 cookies
125g (1 cup + 1 tbsp) cake flour
100g (1 stick minus 1 tsp) butter
50g (1/2 cup) ground almonds
50g (1/4 cup) sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Approximately 100g (1 cup) powdered sugar, plus 2 tbsp vanilla sugar for rolling
1. Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment. In a mixing bowl, beat together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add the ground almonds and flour and mix until just combined.
2. Split the dough into 12 pieces and roll each piece into balls. You want them to be the same size, but irregular in shape like a chunk of snow just pulled off a snowman. Set them on your cookie sheet, a few inches apart. I made mine oblong and tall, so that when they settled during baking they wouldn’t become flat.
3. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until the bottoms are just barely browned. The tops should not brown. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for just a few minutes.
4. Toss together the vanilla sugar and powdered sugar in a large bowl. Now, dredge the still warm cookies in the sugar mixture. Allow them to cool completely before lightly dusting the remaining sugar over the tops. Enjoy!
UNDERTALE AROUND THE WEB
The Undertale fandom is not only huge, but incredibly creative and active! This means that a ton of the foods found in Undertale were created and shared long before I got around to my own entries. I had so much fun browsing for recipes, so I thought I’d share them here. Some items are ones I did for the Undertea too, such as Spider Donuts and Cider. Because my interpretations are different from the ones already made elsewhere, I really suggest you look at all versions! Seeing how other people interpret fictional foods is half the fun of being a fiction food blogger. Heck, why not try multiple recipes for the same thing and see which one you like most?
So, here are the Undertale recipes I’ve found so far. I swear I looked outside of Tumblr too, but it seems like all the creative Undertale bakers swarm to Tumblr! If anyone has another cool recipe they want me to check out, link it in the comments and I’ll add it to the list. A shoutout to Tumblr user jaybug-jimmies, who’s actually compiling an Undertale-themed cookbook! Very cool.
