    KittyKitty's Note:

    My Mom used to buy those wedding cookies in that pink bag, I think from Keebler, and I loved them. I came across this recipe online and tried it. It is just as good, in fact I think it's better. And they are really simple to make.

      The first time I made these cookies, they were terrible! I attribute this to my using unsalted butter and to some extent, the instructions. The second time I used regular (salted) butter. Be sure it is well-melted! With no other "liquids" you need super soft butter to hold things together. Also, I had only used 1/4 c. of sugar the first time. The recipe says to divide, but doesn't really explain what the other powdered sugar is for--dusting? Then why is powdered sugar (with no measurement) listed again at the end. The second time I added all the measured powdered sugar and used additional powdered sugar for dusting. The cookies came out much closer to the elvish cookies. Both times, however, I have had a problem with the dusting. The first time, they were still too warm. The second time, I cooled them completely, but by the time I served them, the powdered sugar had "melted" into the cookie. Doesn't affect the taste, just the presentation. I'm make these again for personal use, but I won't make them for our Christmas cookie exchange.

      My husband and I love the Keebler Danish Wedding Cookies. But, after tasting these delightful morsels, I do not believe we will ever buy them again! This recipe was simple. The cookies had a very nice firm texture and the taste was buttery good. And I even made a mistake buy putting in the whole 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. I thought the cookies would turn out too sweet but, NO! They were perfect. Thank you, Kitty, Kitty.
