European Union Netherlands Netherlands Antilles Spice Cookies



Country: Netherlands Antilles


  • 1 cup margarine or butter
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped blanched almonds (optional)
  • Blanched whole almonds (optional)


Beat margarine or butter with a mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds or by hand. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, cloves and salt. Beat in egg and flour. Add chopped almonds if using. Roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness on a lightly floured board and cut into shapes (windmills and Sinterklaas/Santa shapes are traditional but we also cut them into the children's initials). Decorate with whole almonds if using. Place one inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake in 350 degree F oven 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute, transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes 4 to 6 dozen (depending on size.)
