  9. Hi Cheah,

    Your Danish butter cookies are very nicely piped with beautiful shapes. I reckon baking these kinds in good shapes can be challenging and you did yours very well!

    Btw, iIf you piped these cookies in a "S" shapes, your cookies remind me of the dragon cookies that Sonia baked...
