Danish Strips

A homemade version of the Danish butter cookies that come in a tin. This makes a LOT of cookies, and is dead easy. It is a Traditional Family Recipe I clipped from a newspaper many years ago.

2 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups (1 pound) butter, room temp, NOT margarine, and use good-quality- Land of Lakes is both decent and affordable.
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 scant teaspoon salt

Decorations: sugar, sanding or colored sugar, chopped nuts, etc.- I usually use colored sugars

Separate 1 egg, reserving the white. Mix the other egg, the yolk, sugar, butter, and vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. it can be chilled at this point; this will make puffier cookies.

Heat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheet.

Roll 3-3.25 oz dough into a cookie-sheet-long log. Put 3 such logs onto cookie sheet. pat out till they are around 1.25 inches wide and around 0.25 inch thick.

Beat egg white with 1 teaspoon water till frothy. Brush dough with this and sprinkle with decorations.

Bake for 8-10 min, watching carefully. Ideally, they are just barely cooked, but I like some browning. Remove, and while hot, use a knife of pizza cutter to cut them into narrow diagonal strips. Remove to a rack, or newspapers covered with waxed paper to cool.

Once they are really cooled, put into sealed containers.
