  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Unwrap rolls. You can roll the logs in nuts or sprinkles before slicing. Slice into 3/8 inch wide slices. Place slices 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I just tried this recipe out. The cookies came out so good and buttery. Delicious! The cookies actually taste like the butter cookies that come in the danish blue tin at the gerocery store. Read More

I've been looking everywhere for a recipe that tastes like the Royal Dansk butter cookies... and this is not it. Maybe it's just me but they just taste like sweetened flour. So.... royal dansk they are not (IMO) Read More

I made these delightful cookies for Christmas and have been baking them ever since! My family and friends love these cookies and have standing orders in - thankfully they are easy to make! I roll my logs in colored sugar for a little extra sweetness. Read More

This is a very easy cookie to make. My family loved them. I did add hazelnuts to the top of some and M & M's to the top of some. Great cookie for Santa. Read More

This is a good recipe to use up extra egg yolks. I used 1/2 butter and 1/2 shortening but I think I'll try using all butter next time because simple recipes require the best ingredients. Initially I had some trouble slicing the slightly thawed logs that have been frozen. However the dough became less crumbly and sliced nicely after it thawed out a bit more. I sprinkled some colored sugar sprinkles on top of each unbaked cookie to make them more attractive. All in all these were good cookies and I will use the recipe again. Read More

This recipe is better than the cookies in the blue tin from the grocery store! They are so easy and taste great! I froze them over night and cut them with a bread knife while frozen. It worked great! Roll them in colored sugar for the holidays! Read More

Precisely what I was looking for. Excellent party cookie when rolled in multi colored sprinkles. To tint add food coloring to butter mixture it's hard to complete once the flour is added. Read More

This is an awesome butter cookie recipe. I found it to have just a bit too much flour for mixing though perhaps an 1/8 to 1/4 cup too much. Anyway a variation could be to add 1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped nuts an old neighbor of mine did this and they were wonderful too. Read More
