Danish Butter Cookies in a Blue tin brings back lots of childhood memories. They were considered as the most cherished and premium cookies, li'l bit expensive and the first option opted as gift while visiting guests. Things has not changed much inside the blue tin since years. They still look and taste the same. We kids took a while before selecting our favourites among them. Of all, the one with a whole in the middle and the one with raisins were my favourites. I always tried to insert my finger inside that whole of circular cookies and ate just like that, lol!! I couldn't stop with just one or two cookies at a time; Insanely addicted, I must say!
I've been thinking about baking this for a while now. My kids now started liking home baked goodies more than the shop bought ones. That's a bit relaxing for me too as I can play with certain ingredients to make it healthier and also keep my kids away from preservatives or the kind.So googled it and found the recipe here. It's too delicious. I've baked one more flavor which will soon be posted here.
Baking cookies is not a big deal though; this one especially is so easy as we don't have to keep it for resting in refrigerator or no hassle with mixing or beating butter... Just mix all the ingredients together, pipe it onto baking sheets and bake it for 8-10 minutes; that's it!
1.Mix all the ingredients together using egg beater or hand mixer.
2. Pipe wreaths (circular shapes) onto cookie sheet or baking tray using an open star tip. I used Wilton 1M , but you can use a smaller one too.
3. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 7-8 min. I baked at 170C for 9-10 mts. 200 degrees was too much for my oven. 4.Leave to cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. 5.Transfer cookies into airtight container after cookies are at room temperature.
