These Homemade Butter Cookies is the best cookie recipe that is easy and buttery just like a Danish cookie


  • 115 grams salted butter, room temperature ½ cup
  • 65 grams icing sugar ½ cup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 140 grams all purpose flour 1 cup
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour 18 grams


  • In a bowl, combine the salted butter, icing sugar and vanilla essence. Beat well until creamy
  • Next, add the cream and egg yolk to this mixture and continue beating
  • Lastly, add the all purpose flour and cornflour too. Mix well, making sure there are no lumps
  • Pour the mixture into a piping bag fitted with the wilton 1M nozzle. Pipe the cookies onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper making sure each cookie is at a distance from the other
  • Place this tray in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking. Once chilled, bake these at 170 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown
  • Once baked, let the cookies sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving. This lets the cookie get a little crisp
