Hi Zeny,

Here is a recipe for a Danish Christmas Cookie that might be the one you're looking for.

Danish Christmas Cookies

Danish Vanillekranse Christmas Cookies
Servings: Makes about 150 cookies

These cookies are served in Danish homes at Christmas time. My Mother always made these for Christmas, she also made Danish Klejners, another Danish Christmas cookie.

These cookies can also be made in other Christmas shapes and decorated with icing, colored sugars, and candies.

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds

Cream the butter and sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients. Mix until dough is smooth. Put dough in a cookie press ( cut out cookies with wreath shaped cookie cutter, or any type christmas design cookie cutter) and place wreaths onto greased cookie sheets. (Vanilla cookie wreaths should be about 1 1/2-inch in diameter). Bake at 325 degrees F, or until very slightly browned.

Makes approximately 150 cookies.

Note: Vanillekranse cookies can be made in different shapes other than wreaths. Try candy cane shapes, Christmas bells, snowmen, or santas, etc.

Also, see recipe for Danish Klejner's (another Danish Christmas cookie recipe on this website in the "Guest Recipe Book", under the "Christmas category".........DianasDesserts

By the way, my husband (who used to live in Denmark), does remember the Monde Brand cookies.

Take care and please let me know if these are the cookies your children love so much.

My Best, Diana

Sincerely, Diana
