Eggless Danish Butter Cookies
Buttery melt-in-mouth Eggless Danish Butter Cookies! These cookies require only 5 ingredients are one of my favorite treats to bake for the holidays.
They are also perfect for gifting to your friends and family. It’s the season for homemade cookies. I love baking cookies especially during this time of the year.
1/2 cup unsalted butter 113 grams (1 stick), at room temperature
1/3 cup powdered sugar 40 grams, also known as confectioners sugar/icing sugar
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour 115 grams approx
2 tablespoons cornstarch 20 grams
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Using paddle attachment of your stand mixer (or using your hand mixer) beat together room temperature butter until smooth and creamy.
Add in the powdered sugar, flour, cornstarch and vanilla and mix until combined.
The dough should come together on it’s own, if not just use your hands to bring it together.
Now, take a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Transfer the dough into a piping bag lined with a closed star tip/nozzle and pipe the cookie dough into these rosette shapes (starting from the center and making one full round around it).
The dough might feel stiff to pipe at first but keep pressing and pipe and eventually with the warmth of your hands, it will loosen up and you will be able to pipe easily.
Once the cookies are piped, transfer the baking sheet into the refrigerator for 2-4 hours. This will help in preventing the cookies from spreading in the oven.
Pre-heat oven to 350 F degrees. Take the baking sheet out of the refrigerator and bake at 350 F degrees for 18 to 20 minutes until the bottom of the cookies start turning light brown in color. I baked mine for 20 minutes.
Transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy these eggless Danish Butter Cookies with coffee.
Chill the cookies for a minimum of 2 hours to prevent spreading. You can even chill overnight.
This recipe can be easily doubled.
