My parents came from the Netherlands to the US in the late 50's. I grew up with Dutch food which is very peasant, but the pastries and cookies are something else. My mother always made these at Christmas time. They are very simple and have a delightful spice flavor.

  4. Add dry ingredients gradually.
  5. Knead dough a bit and then divide into two equal portions.
