Not Without Heels: Danish Wedding Cookie Recipe

I'm going to make a bold statement and say that Danish Wedding Cookies (the Keebler ones that come in the Barbie-pink box) might just be my favorite cookies ever. I haven't been able to find them since we moved here though, so last week I decided to try making them.

After some searching online I found a recipe and was pleasantly surprised when they turned out very close to what I wanted. They were so close, in fact, that I knew with a little tweaking I could come up with a recipe that would give me exactly what I was longing for in the pink box. I tried again a couple nights ago and I hate to toot my own horn, but these are awesome!

Yield: 24 cookies

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup rolled oats, roughly chopped in food processor
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/8 teaspoon salt (only add if using unsalted butter)
1/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for rolling
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Combine flour, rolled oats, cinnamon, butter, salt, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.

3. Beat on medium speed until a stiff dough forms. Add chocolate chips and continue to beat until fully mixed in.

4. Shape dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets, flattening balls slightly.

5. Bake until edges are just starting to brown, about 12 minutes.

6. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool slightly. Once they are cool enough to handle, but still warm, roll cookies in powdered sugar and return to wire racks to fully cool.

7. Cool completely, then roll again in powdered sugar.



  1. The pink box is the BEST, but these sound just as fantastic. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  4. Thanks for the recipe, my cosmopolitan husband will be thrilled!

    What he specifically likes about the Pink Boxed cookies is the crunch in the bite, before i try out the recipe, would you say they have the same crunch, if not how do you suppose i could augment it to obtain a crunch texture?

  5. So i tried the recipe you posted, thanks a bunch!

    After reading the long, somewhat concerning (BHTC?) ingredients list on the Pink Box, I realized it has coconut too, we're a coconut eating family so after food processing more or less cup'o Coconut (shredded & sweetened), it too was tossed into the mixing bowl of Danish delight!

    Furthermore, cinnamon was not on the almost unpronounceable ingredient list, however i am sure it would be nice, but due to the added Coconut i withheld it from the mix.

    - Thanks,

  7. Oh, Pardon! the preservative is actually "TBHQ" not "BHTC".

    Though "TBHQ" raises an eyebrow of concern,
    It shan't axe a moment of pleasure,
    By a nibble of A Keebler or Two.
    4 is the mark of a serving,
    So just that perhaps.

  8. Ive tried and tried for years to find the pink box but sadly I had to contact Keebler to find out, to my dismay, that they no longer make these FABULOUS cookies!!!! :( my heart dropped. Now that this amazing recipe has been handed out for the world though, I shall be makinh and baking and devouring constantly!!!
