Butter cookie (or butter biscuits), known as, Danish biscuits, are unleavened cookies consisting of butter, flour, and sugar. It is also called as crisp cookie due to its texture. It is generally necessary to chill the dough to enable proper manipulation and handling. Butter cookies at their most basic have no flavoring, but they are often flavored with vanilla, chocolate, and coconut, and topped with sugar crystals. They also come in a variety of shapes such as circles, squares, ovals, rings, and with a variety of appearances, including marbled, checkered or plain. Using piping bags, twisted shapes can be made. In some parts of the world, such as Europe and North America, butter cookies are often served around Christmas time. Butter cookies are also a very popular gift in China, especially during Chinese New Year.
