I found the cutest thing for all you cookie fanatics out there: a Dutch cookie care package!
It’s a small packet Speculaas seasoning (The real deal, baby! Old-school Dutch seasoning), and a wooden mould in the form of a windmill or Dutch girl to shape the cookies with.
Simply had to buy a few of them as giveaways on Kayotic Kitchen—nothing ever seemed more appropriate.
I bought myself one, too, just so I could put it to the test and that’s how I know these spices are the real deal. So far everyone who has walked through my front door stuck their nose up in the air to take a whiff. My house still smells like a gingerbread house!
No worries. If needed, I’ll translate the recipe for you.
The windmill didn’t hold the details all too well during my baking session—I think I made my cookies too thick—but they sure tasted and smelled absolutely fabulous.
Want to get a taste of our Dutch pastry and let your house smell like that, too? Just answer the following question.
“What are your favorite cookies?”
I’m giving away two of these cookie care packages. No entries after Monday July 11th, and only one entry per person, please!
