This recipe for Danish butter cookies is another traditional and very popular Danish Christmas recipe. In Danish this cookie is called Vaniljekranse which directly translated means vanilla wreaths. A Vaniljekrans is basically a small round cookie with a crisp crust and a delicious taste of vanilla. We think that these Vaniljekranse is one of the best Christmas desserts/snacks that you can make in the weeks leading up to Christmas. As said, Vaniljekranse is a very traditional cookie and it goes way back, and we both remember having made these cookies with our moms when we were kids – shaping the small round cookies are just really fun, especially for kids….
