I never have liked butter cookies, they just seem so bland to me. I like something in my cookies, whether it be nuts, chocolate chips, or dried fruit.

The ones in the tin boxes that are exported from Denmark all taste about the same, but there are many personal recipes and they can vary quite a bit. The Danish name for these cookies is vaniljekranse and there are many Danish recipes (opskrift) on the Web in Danish. You can use Google Translate Danish to English to read them in English. The measures are based on the metric system, so you might want to get some metric measuring cups and spoons. You'll need a piping bag, or comparable electrical appliance that can act like one.

They are very easy to make at home.

you know, I have seen that graphic describing the 5 different kinds, but I just checked the bottom of my tin and it was blank.

The rest is history because they sure didn't last long. They were D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.!

And yes, there are different types/flavors:
Royal Dansk - Tin Varieties
I didn't know there were so many. Thanks for sharing

Just make sure they are authentic Danish and not made in China...
China Royal Dansk Danish Butter Cookies, 4 Oz. Tin - China Biscuits in UAE
That's low messing with someone's cookies, lol. I'll make sure to check.

Thanks. My grandfather was Danish and I grew up eating those cookies.

Some of those recipes have almonds. I don't remember that from the tin cookies.

You're most welcome! I was not aware that there were so many types either. If I ever see or notice them in stores I have only ever noticed the plain butter cookies which are obviously their best seller.

And, I am not a dunker of these cookies either. I don't like to eat them soggy. I like to take a good bite of their light crispiness first, savor the buttery goodness and then chase it with a drink of coffee or green tea.

I'm not sure how I feel about there being additional flavors.

It was always iffy at my grandmother's when we saw a tin. Would it be cookies? Or a sewing kit? Or coupons? Or mass cards?

My cousins and I were so often disappointed...
