This bake is very much for fatty hubby, a butter cookie lover.. And of course, I fell for the "throw everything in and mix" by travellingfoodies, hook, line and sinker!
When I bake, I never think too much, especially if it's a straightforward recipe (I'm more than happy it's simple ^^!). But if you like, there's an in-depth post by travellingfoodies to perfecting these butter cookies. I recommend that you not think too much. Just follow the simple instructions and enjoy the bake ^^!
Klassiske vaniljekranse, danish butter cookies (posted by dreamer'sloft, original from travellingfoodies)
1 egg (60g)
130g icing sugar
2 tbsp vanilla paste (I used 2 tsp vanilla extract.. no prob ^^)
1. Place everything in a mixing bowl and mix on the lowest speed possible.
2. Pipe wreaths onto lined/greased baking tray. Use an open star tip ie. Wilton 1M.
3. Bake in a preheated oven of 200C for 7-8 minutes.
4. Leave to cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet/tray.
Really, that's it. All butter cookies recipes are really this simple and straightforward! ^^
I used my precious Lurpak unsalted butter and my 11 months old homemade vanilla extract for this bake. And piped wreaths for the first time in my life ^^! It's a wonder I got any right! ^^
Well, fatty hubby and piggies sure enjoyed these cookies fresh from the oven ^^. I didn't.. well, not at first bite. I thought they were rather plain and not quite buttery enough ^^||. HOWEVER, these cookies were ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL once perfectly cooled/rested/next day ^^!!!
They taste just like kjeldsens butter cookies! Full butter flavor and aroma! ^^ I must remember patience is a virtue when it comes to most bakes! Ooh, yums! ^^
