DANISH BUTTER COOKIES (KLASSISKE VANILJEKRANSE)

Posted on

Danish Butter Cookies (Klassiske Vaniljekranse). Crispy, buttery goodness in each bite.

At Christmas time I was always a fan of those Danish Butter Cookies made by Royal Dansk. You know the ones that come in a blue tin with several different shaped cookies in them?  Some are sprinkled with coarse sugar on top & some are plain. I searched the internet looking for a similar recipe & I finally found one that I liked. However the measurements were listed using the metric system & the conversions didn’t come out evenly so I tweaked the recipe to make it work in the U.S.

This recipe is supposed to be close to a traditional Danish Butter Cookie. The cookies turned out crisp & loaded with butter flavor which was just what I was hoping for. I didn’t add any coarse sugar on top of the cookies but only because I didn’t have any on hand. These would also be cute decorated with colored sprinkles on top.
