Better known as Royal Danisa biscuits, sables and brysslkex, butter cookies are a light and delicious snack that was often served to European nobility and royalty. Although they are a popular treat throughout Europe today, they were mostly served during large occasions such as Christmas, and so were seen as an extremely decadent treat.
Butter cookies are said to be more like crunchy cakes than proper biscuits, although they are not made with the same ingredients. Inside a butter cookie is sugar, butter and wheat flour – the yeast and flavourings being left out. Some do choose to add vanilla and chocolate chips later on. The cookies also tend to come in a variety of shapes, again a nod to their noble past.
Nowadays, there are a number of brands making butter cookies. However, one of the most popular is Danisa.
