Much ado about nothing:)~ Except..scents..in the long run~
To set you in the mood:)
I bought a Dutch Cookie Mold at my market this summer..It's pretty big:)
I just liked it..I thought it might be Vintage..but now I think not..
I Googled and Googled recipes..
What I wanted was a Biscoff:)
In my youth one of my best friends was Gwedolyn Brejaart~ Gwen.. GVENNIE..her mom said..
She was Dutch..we lived nearby for a short time..
Her dad was a Captain with KLM airlines and I think her mom was ..at that time we called them stewardesses:)
I wanted to be one..:)
They were from Holland.
The most beautiful family:)
I ate Speculaas at their home..and tasted Gouda and Dropjes for the first time..
Their Speculaas.. were windmill shaped.. 40 yrs ago..true authentic ones..from Holland.
Like my authentic Sterling Silver Windmill and Dutch Clog they gave me for my charm bracelet ...I was 10:)
I cannot get Biscoff cookies when I want..
So I thought I would try and re~create..
The cookies did not hold their shape as I would have liked..and the dough was near impossible to get out of the mold..
But a small success nevertheless and the taste..so close..to the Biscoff cookie ..
Gotta thank Barbara for the mood and Martha for the recipe~
If you cannot get Biscoff Cookies..Use this recipe..
The spices..are spot on~
I halved the recipe and it made 4 Giant Windmills~♥
Also tried a new bread..The King Arthur Food Processor Bread~
To sample my Brotform..
It didn't stick at all..but would like a darker crust so will probably try w/ 5 minute artisan bread recipe next~
I love the look the brotform gives the bread~
The cute decorations to the right of my bread were found at this lovely blog..
Have a great weekend..and week:)~
And any food processor keeper bread recipes would be appreciated..as well as keeping the form speculaas:)
