Once upon a time a young couple in Denmark opened a bakery. While this seemed like an ordinary bakery, customers soon realized that this couple’s butter cookies were something quite special, and these cookies flew off the shelves.
Now 75 years later, the Royal Dansk (as the bakery became known) is still making these special butter cookies, and these cookies have now become renowned all around the world.
Today Royal Dansk Danish Butter Cookies are a favorite holiday cookie.
But they are not just a holiday cookie as many people enjoy eating them as snacks and desserts, and often use them to make pie dough for pudding pies, cheese cakes, and even in some cases, dessert pizzas.
While these cookies are still a holiday favorite, many people diligently seek them out at other times of the year.
