Can you not say "hver pige modtager en sandwich"?

Yeah you can. (Native dane here)

Is it a correct English sentence: "The girls receive each"?

Not so much by modern standards. It would sound more right if we were still speaking Old or Middle English.

A more moden form would be "The girls each recieve ...".

Why not "Pigerne hver får..."?
