These crispy butter cookies taste better than store-bought ones and are so easy to make. They are just 3 ingredients and don’t require any eggs. The cookies come out very crispy, buttery and sweet. They are perfect for gifting.

I love eating butter cookies, especially this time of year and I can never resist buying a few tins of Danish butter cookies. But most of the time I’m actually disappointed with the ones I buy. These homemade butter cookies taste so much better. They are so crispy, buttery and have just the right amount of sweetness.

The butter and powdered sugar are creamed together at high speed for a few minutes until you have a light, fluffy mixture that is white in color and resembles whipped cream. The flour is then mixed in until a dough forms.

The dough is soft enough that it can be piped. I used an open star tip to pipe swirls that resemble my favorite Danish butter cookie shape (I made mine spiral swirls If you want it to look more like the ones in the tins, just pipe a circle).
