    Deantini's Note:

    These cookie slices were my absolute favorites growing up in Denmark. They are simple but yet so delicious, especially if you are a sweetened coconut fan. This is an old family recipe. I have tried to search the origin but it goes back hundreds of years literally. I have done my best to convert recipe into cups/tablespoons but if you have a scale I recommend that you weigh the ingredients instead of using the other measures. The cookies freeze well. The dough is quite fragile and I recommend that you cool it for 10 to 15 minutes in the refrigerator before rolling it out.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 30

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Icing

    • 3/4 cup icing sugar (100 g)
    • 2 tablespoons milk (I have read that egg white instead of water gives a nicer glace, but have not tried this myself)
    • sweetened coconut (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. 2
      Mix all ingredients until a dough consistency forms.
    3. 3
      Divide dough into 4 equal portions.
    4. 4
      Roll each portion into a 2.5 inch strip, about a 1/4 inch (or thinner) thick.
    5. 5
      Make icing; icing should be ready once cookies are removed from oven.
    6. 6
      Bake the strips at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 minutes.
    7. 7
      Remove from oven and WHILE STILL WARM brush with icing. If you wish you can also sprinkle with a bit of sweetened coconut on top of icing.
    8. 8
      WHILE STILL WARM cut the strips diagonally into 1 inch strips (now you have 1 x 2.5 inch cookies). The cookies will seem really fragile while cutting but they harden as they cool.
    9. 9
      Place on cooling rack and let cool. (I let mine cool right on the baking sheet).

      Calling all coconut lovers! Even though I had difficulty with crumbly dough the outcome is superb! Think my butter was too cold for initial mixing. I own two different types of cookie sheets and had better results with darker one. These are so good that it reminds me of why I do not bake cookies often--I just cannot stop eating them. The bottoms are perfect too. Thank you Deantini!

      These are for a gift box but I had DH sample and rate a sacrificial cookie and he thought that I should give him half of the batch "to keep testing". He presented 5 fingers with a smile and another cookie stolen cookie in his face! As picky as this man is they have to be keepers! :D

      I love coconut and these were a treat! They were chewy at first, crisp the next day, and then chewy again. For the glaze I mixed the xxx sugar with coconut cream and then topped them with toasted coconut. They were a bit difficult to roll at first, what worked was rolling them on my silicone mat, and then using parchment on top, then it was a breeze. Mine weren't nice and even after cutting but that doesn't affect the taste :) Made for Best of 2013 Tag
