Danish Butter Cookies

What do you remember when you see the blue tin filled with pretty shaped butter cookies?? I remember collecting these tins . These tins helped me in keeping my things organised . All my color pencils , crayons , needlework stuff ,  everything goes in it's respective boxes. These cookies are little bit expensive , but they are worth it and the taste is still the same. When there is a guest at home or when we are visiting someone's place we buy these cookies or the Fab cakes ( No doubt about it ).These cookies are highly addictive and you cant stop eating with one.

Last week we had bought these cookies and they were over within the next day. So that's where i thought  let me bake them. When i was going through the recipes online i found the exact recipe ( Klassiske Vaniljekranse) i wanted. ( Actually the photos attracted me). This recipe is quite easy , you don't need to have prior baking experience . 


APF- 320g
Butter - 200 g
Icing sugar - 130 g
Egg - 1
Vanilla essense - 1 TBLS
Vanilla Flavor - 1 TSP


Cover a baking tray with the parchment paper.
Preheat the oven at 400F.
Using a hand beater or paddle attachment cream the butter . Add the icing sugar and continue to beat.
Then add the egg and beat it . Add the vanilla essence and the vanilla flavoring.
Lastly add the APF and beat it .
Pipe the cookie dough using a Star tip on the parchment paper.
Bake the cookie for around 7-8 minutes.
Once it is baked , leave the cookie in the baking tray till it cools down.
When the cookies are cooled down transfer it to a airtight container .


Make sure all the ingredients are in room temperature.
Do not over beat the dough. It makes the biscuits hard.
Do not try to take the cookies from the baking tray as soon it is out from the oven.
Using Vanilla Flavor is optional .
