Danish cookies with licorice and cranberries

Must Try

The Danes love licorice so much that they put it in everything. At the airport in Copenhagen, for example, we even discovered cookies with licorice and cranberries. They were so horribly delicious that we made them ourselves.


For a cookie jar full:

  • 1 tablespoon fine liquorice powder
  • 50 grams dried cranberries (nut trade)
  • 300 grams of flour
  • 6 grams baking powder
  • 130 grams soft, unsalted butter
  • 200 grams brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch of salt

The combination of licorice and cranberries (and cookies) may seem like an odd one. But in this recipe, it yields crunchy, buttery cookies with a little tartness from the cranberries. You actually only taste the licorice in the aftertaste, as a salty, spicy touch of je-ne-sais quoi that remains on your tongue. So good!

We used fine liquorice powder from the Danish liquorice label Lakrids for this recipe . But you can buy it in many more places licorice powder (tip: check online!).

It is important when making these cookies that you cut them wafer thin. Preferably make the dough a day in advance, so that it can cool and harden in the refrigerator.

Mix the softened butter with the sugar with a mixer.

Stir the baking powder into the flour and mix into the butter mixture.

Add the two eggs and let the mixer run until you have a cohesive dough.

Finely chop the cranberries and add them to the dough along with the salt and liquorice powder. Mix well.

Form the dough into a ball and roll it out on a floured work surface into a long sausage (or two long sausages). The thickness should be about 6 cm. Wrap in plastic wrap and let rest overnight in the fridge.

If you want to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line two baking trays with baking paper.

Cut wafer-thin slices from the dough with a sharp knife and place them on the baking sheets.

Bake the cookies with licorice and cranberries for 6 to 9 minutes until nicely browned. Store them in a sealed container or container.
