For those of you not familiar with Kipferl, they are traditional Austrian vanilla Christmas crescent shaped cookies (Vanillekipferl).
The best part about these little gems is they are very simple to make. The most time consuming part is hand shaping the crescents.
This version is a Fall flavored riff on these powdered sugar coated treats.
Adding fresh fresh roasted pumpkin to the batter and cinnamon to the sugar coating adds a slight orange tint to the color and a bit of seasonal spice to the classic almond taste.
