Vanilje kranse Recipe.

This recipe will give you about 85 delicious cookies.

500 g Flour

250 g Sugar

375 g  Butter

1 Egg

1/4 teaspoon Bi-cab-soda



Mix all ingredients together in an electric mixer, put mixture in a pipping bag with a size 10 nozzle and pipe out on a lightly floured kitchen bench in a straight line 40 – 50cm long. I recommend using a good quality pipping bag as it can be a bit hard to pipe out.

Cut into 9-10cm long pieces and make them into circles and put onto a baking tray lined with baking paper or a silicone baking mat, keep in mind that the cookies will run out a little during baking.
