That’s why I am so glad when I found this recipe by Little Duck’s Kitchen on Youtube. These are the best danish butter cookies I have ever tasted! They are super crunchy and have the perfect buttery flavor. Watch the video below for the full instructions.

  • 1 piece of egg
  • 1 cup of icing sugar

Step 1:

Cut the butter into small pieces and place them into a bowl. Wait for them to soften. Crack 1 egg and place in a bowl. Beat well, then set aside.

Step 2:

Press the room-temperature butter using a spatula to flatten it. Add 1 cup of icing sugar to the butter. Mix using a hand mixer at medium speed until well combined and fluffy.

Step 3:

While continuously mixing, add the beaten egg little by little. Next, add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence and mix again.

Step 4:

Sieve 2 1/8 cups of cake flour, 1/2 cup and 4 teaspoons of cornflour, and 2.5 tablespoons of milk powder into the butter mixture to remove any lumps.

Step 5:

Mix well using a silicone spatula until well incorporated. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag with a 1 M nozzle tip.

Step 7:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 8:

Brush your baking tray with melted butter. Squeeze the piping bag in a circular motion to make the cookies. Make sure each one is well-spaced from the other. Place them in the fridge and let them chill for about 10 minutes. This will make the cookies’ form clearer.
