Danish


I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.

My Christmas was very nice, we celebrated Christmas Eve quietly at home then Christmas morning [post present opening] the family and I drove to Las Vegas for a little weekend fun.

But back to Christmas Eve… Having had to work that day and not having done much planning on what I was going to serve for our Christmas Eve dinner I was surprised at how well it all turned out. Everyone loved every single dish, but I have to say the star of the show was the Calamari. [Yum!]

A close second were these yummy cookies we had for dessert, I think they tasted way better than those in the blue tin so, if you are a fan of those, you definitely need to give these a try.




Cookie Month: Danish Butter Cookies
adapted from All Recipes

Makes too many to count! :)

3 cups unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
7 egg yolks
6 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.

Beat in the yolks one at a time, then stir in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk the flour, salt, and baking powder. Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet in a few batches.

Using a cookie press, press cookies onto an ungreased cookie sheet spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
