A “vaniljekrans” is basically a small round butter cookie with a crisp crust and a delicious taste of vanilla. It’s a traditional Danish cookie and it goes way back – almost every Dane remembers making these cookies with their families as kids – shaping the small round cookies is just really fun, especially for kids. Many Mexicans enjoy buñuelos this time of year – a fried thin dough covered in cinnamon sugar, but these cookies are a delicious alternative of you want to avoid the sizzling oil.
Our Mexican Vanilla Beans elevate the flavor of these cookies with woody notes that accentuate the creamy and sweet flavor profile. You have to be able to taste the vanilla in these cookies because no one wants a “vaniljekrans” without real vanilla.
