Yes! We are talking about the famous Danish Butter Biscuits. Named Vaniljekranse in Danish, which means Vanilla wreaths, these special biscuits are traditional Christmas treats in Denmark and have become popular around the world over recent years.

And so, with the holidays nearly upon us, we at Kenko Tea have found you the perfect Danish Matcha Butter Biscuits recipe for you, created by Loan Nguyen aka @lily.dolly92.

Loan is a matcha fan from Vietnam. Although not a professional baker, Loan has taught herself how to bake from the internet, adapting the recipes with her own added flair.

Loan’s Matcha Butter Cookies recipe is inspired by fellow well-known Vietnamese baker, Linh Trang from @savourydays, who also has been featured on Kenko Tea previously.
