This recipe comes from a Dutch lady that I met in playgroup, she made them for our Christmas Breakup Party and they were just moreish, so I asked her for the recipe. It makes heaps and heaps but they do store well, and make great gifts!


250gm plain flour
1/8 tsp Bi-Carb Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp ground clove
1/2 tsp ground ginger
100gm butter
150gm sugar
1 egg
4tbsp cream

  • Mix flour and spices together
  • Rub in the cold butter that has been chopped into small pieces
  • Beat eggs and sugar together and then add the cream.
  • Mix the two mixes together until they make a dough it is fairly sticky
  • Cool in the fridge for 30 minutes
  • Roll out into finger thick rolls and chop into small pieces about 2cm
  • Put them on a tray lined with baking paper
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius until just brown.
Enjoy! If you find the spices a little strong for your liking just drop the amounts until you are happy.
