Danish butter cookies, otherwise known as Brysslkex and Sables, are a delicious traditional Scandinavian Christmas treat. Nowadays they don't just appear at the end of the year but can be enjoyed all year round!
What is a Danish butter cookie?
If you’ve ever had a Danish butter cookie, you know they’re pretty darn delicious. But what exactly are they? Here are five things everyone should know about Danish butter cookies:
1. They’re made with real butter.
Danish butter cookies are, well, made with real butter. This is what gives them their rich, buttery flavor. Most other types of cookies are made with vegetable oil, so if you’re looking for a cookie that’s truly packed with flavor, Danish butter cookies are the way to go.
2. They have a long shelf life.
Since Danish butter cookies are made with real Butter, they have a longer shelf life than other types of cookies. You can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks. So, if you want to make a batch of cookies ahead of time, Danish butter cookies are a great option.
3. They’re perfect for dunking in milk.
The next time you’re craving a glass of cold milk and some cookies, reach for a Danish butter cookie. Their thick texture makes them the perfect candidate for dunking in milk (or coffee!). And since they don’t crumble when wet like other types of cookies, you won’t end up with a mess when you take a bite.
4. They come in many different flavors and shapes.
Danish butter cookies are an elegant, simple, and versatile baked good. They can be enjoyed on their own or used as a base for other desserts.
Like other cookies, Danish butter cookies are largely dependent on the baker's motivation and how they feel that day. If the baker is feeling creative, they may experiment with different flavors or add special embellishments to the cookies. If they're not in the mood for baking, the cookies may be less impressive. However, even on an off day, Danish butter cookies are still delicious.
Some favorite toppings for these baked goods include cinnamon sugar, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, chopped
