... in the round blue tin. IDK why but I love them. And I usually don't like store bought cookies.

So here is my question - are they different flavors or just different shapes?

Those individual cookies actually have names
Spoiler


Just make sure they are authentic Danish and not made in China...

Too weird that you posted this. I actually just caved, took a chance and bought 2 tins of these same butter cookies right before Christmas at Walgreens. It was a BOGO deal so I scored both tins for only $2.50.

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:

I have not had the same luck with tinned cookies

I like a few kinds of cookies: choc chip - oatmeal - and a few others... mostly the soft chewy kind.

Seems that most of the tinned packaged cookies I have sampled are the more crispy hard sugar type cookies ( my least fav )

Royal Dansk...

Edible, but look at the ingredients and the transfats.

I think there are preservatives in them that won't be there if you make them yourself...

When I make them I use 100% organic butter, and vanilla bean paste... can't beat it. No RGH hormones in the butter and the vanilla taste is rich and smooth.

Did you just make that up???? Do some research instead of propagating false information.

Ingredients. Wheat Flour, Butter (Milk), Sugar, Desiccated Coconut, Invert Sugar, Salt, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Natural Flavor (Vanilla).

Saturated fats, but no trans fats. No preservatives or coloring added.

This. I thought I was scoring a good deal on this kind of cookie (an off-brand in the same blue tin), but I read the label when I got home and they were made in China. I ended up not eating them. Next time, I'll make sure to get the real thing.

It's probably my imagination, but I always thought that the rectangular ones with vertical ridges tasted a bit more like coconut than the others.
