These cookies were originally made in wooden molds and given to children on Dec. Nicholas Day (or in Dutch, Sinterklaas Day). They are crispy with a flavorful taste of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and imprinted with a traditional Dutch design.
The Netherlands is famous for its tulips and windmills. There are still over a thousand windmills in the Netherlands, often run by volunteers. Tulips are cultivated in fields full of beautiful colors throughout the country in the spring.
