Vanilla Horseshoe Cookies

This is my recipe for vanilla horseshoe (“Vanilkové Rožky”) cookies that are not only one of my favorites but also always a hit with anyone that have ever tried them. I got asked countless times for a recipe, so I finally found time to sit down blog it and share it with the world.


  • 250g butter
  • 340g flour
  • 70g powdered sugar
  • 140g chopped nuts (I like almonds but any will do)
  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Mix everything together and put to fridge for at least 30 min to chill.
  2. Roll the smaller pieces of dough into a cylinder that you then cut into smaller pieces that you shape into a horseshoe.

  3. Bake it at 180 degrees for about 10-12 minutes.
  4. While still hot, cover the cookies in sugar that I like to mix with additional vanilla sugar.
