Danish wedding cookies are buttery, crunchy, nutty, and slightly sweet. They are perfect when you want just a bite of something sweet!

For me, they are a perfect reminder of my childhood. My mom used to buy those pink bags of Danish wedding cookies at the grocery store. They were my favorites!

It was only after I grew up and inherited my grandmother's cookbook that I realized she had a recipe in there for cocoons.

And guess what?

They are the same kind of cookies my mom used to buy! Except these are so much better. These are made fresh! And, honestly, there's nothing better than a fresh-baked cookie.
