Danish Butter Cookies

63 comments


I'm sure many of you love Kjeldsens Butter Cookies for the buttery and crunchy texture. It is also my favourite childhood snack. I remember I love to pick all the pretty shapes in that famous blue tin and eat them either for morning breakfast or when watching TV.  It's really easy to make these cookies with simple ingredients and without much effort at home.  Thanks to Alan of Travelling Foodies for sharing this yummy recipe with us. Definitely good to serve these butter cookies to your guests during the Chinese New Year holidays!





Danish Butter Cookies

     
    Ingredients:
     1 Egg (60g) - lightly beaten

     200g Soft butter - 7/8 cup (Lurpak butter),    very soft butter

     320g Plain flour - 2 3/4 cup sifted
     130g Icing sugar - sifted - 1 1/4 cup
     2 tbsp Vanilla extract

     Method:
  • Place everything in a mixing bowl and mix evenly using a paddle attachment on the lowest speed possible.
  • Pipe wreaths onto baking tray using an open star tip. (I used tip 195.)
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 7-8 minutes (I baked for 9 minutes).
  • Leave to cool slightly before removing from the baking tray.
  • Transfer cookies into airtight container after cookies are at room temperature. 

I followed the simple step of making this Danish butter cookies from this video provided by Alan.

  27. Ann, K牌丹麦牛油饼中, 小时我最不喜欢就是这款, 最喜欢的是有葡萄的, 不知是否它太plain了。现在老了很怕牛油饼,觉得很腻。没有恶意, 只因忆起往事, 纯粹说说。 Anyway, 你做到很像K牌的。GRACE

  40. Ann, how is very soft butter like? Your previous butter cookie recipe, I left butter out for 20mins. Also, I don't have paddle attachment so can I use a normal beater at lowest speed? I will be attempting this in the coming week. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sorry more questions.....I don't have vanilla extract so can I use vanilla essence and do I still use 2tbsp? Do I have to increase flour if I use vanilla essence? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ai Li, Is very soft butter that you can leave for more than 45 minutes under our hot weather. Never mind, just use vanilla essence 2 tbsp and follow the recipe exactly. I think is ok to use the normal beater. Have a try and see what is outcome.
      Did you read Alan's post as he'd explained in great detail for making this recipe.

    1. Hi Elsie, Thank you for trying my recipe :)
      These cookies didn't last long in my family. We finished off within 3 days. I just stored them in an airtight container at room temperature.

  45. I have to thank you for putting the ingredients in grams and cups. We don't use the cup measurement where I live, and I always have to try to look for the exact equivalence and it's just not easy. You made things a lot easier for me, thank you so much.

    The rest of bloggers who post their recipes only in cups, should learn that from you!
