Hello ladies! I'm hoping there is someone out there who holds the clue to what I need. In elementary school, my entire school did a project for Christmas. My topic was the country Holland. I was given a packet of information and part of it was a recipe for English Cookies. I tried: it and loved it! It had only 5 ingredients.
Unfortunately, I grew up and moved out and started my own life and that recipe is long gone. I have tried to search for it online but to no avail. Do you or someone you know have a recipe to English Cookies? it was supposed to be Holland's official Christmas cookie or some sort like that.
I remember for certain that it was 5 ingredients: butter, sugar, flour, milk and vanilla. I know for certain that it was 1 cup of butter and 1 cup of sugar. The rest i do not know. I wish I could say it's 3 cups flour, 2 tbsp milk and 1-2 tsp vanilla but I tried it and it made me sick.
allrecipes.com has a long list of cookies from Holland...here is a link to one that kind of sounds like you are talking about...no added milk or vanilla...
It's not how you start, it's how you end....so end strong!!
Walk yourself strong!!
OF COURSE the link will not take you right to the cookie recipe...so in their search box type in holland cookies...and it's Holland butter cookies
Are you referring to a cookies that you drop and bake on a cookie sheet, OR a cookie/cake that is baked in a tin and sliced into wedges? The ingredients might be for a Boter Koek. Some people use vanilla, others use almond flavoring. Recipes are posted below.~~Vicki
Boter Koek by dutchmom4miI've noticed that there are a few recipes for Dutch Butter cake. For us, this is the one that travels the best, and I get requests to send it to people on their birthdays, and even my son in the Marines Kuwait, then Iraq, and back to Kuwait. You can get the metal pan at Walmart---last time I purchased it was a $1.49. Mix, Bake, Cool, and Mail!Ingredients:1-1/2 sticks Imperial margarine OR butter1 cup white sugar2 eggs (only 1 used in the batter)2 teaspoons almond extract1-1/4 cups flourDirections:Grease an 8" round cake pan.Mix margarine and sugar together, until light.Add egg and extract. Add flour. Mixture will be quite thick.Press into the greased cake pan.Beat an egg, and brush on top. (Don't use too much.)Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Do not overbake or underbake.Immediately, sprinkle with sugar.Note: During the holidays, we like it with red or green sugar.Note 2: Sometimes sliced almonds are placed decoratively on top before brushing with egg.
Dutch Boter Koek Wedges by Omatje_Calif(taste like short bread) my favorite2 sticks Imperial margarine7 oz sugar (a little less than a cup) 2 cups flour1 tsp vanilla1 egg whiteMix margarine, sugar and vanilla by hand untill smooth. Then mix and knead the flour in untill it forms into a ball.Divide and pat into two 9 inch round cake pans.Brush egg white over the patted koek not to thick (if there is to much egg white on it, mop it up with a paper towel)It has to be shiny, with the back of a butter knife, make a pattern (like diamond shapes).Bake in oven at 350º for 25 to 35 minutes check them at 25 min. if they are not to brown.Let cool for 12 to 15 min..Do not cool completely, it has to be a little warm to cut with a sharp knife. Cut it loose carefully from the side of the pan.You can cut them in 8 or 16 wedges I cut them in 16 wedges.I used real butter before but could not keep them that long, the Imperial is my favorite to bake those wedges.If you like, you can make 4 balls out of it and put almond paste in between the dough but cook 15 min. longer.Other changes with this dough. you can put Orange, Rum or Almond extract in the dough.Also after you divide the dough you can make 2 rolls and put in refrigerator for 1/2 hour and cut thin cookies and bake at 350º for about 8 min. let them cool down then they are so crispy.Have fun making the Boter Koek Wedges
