Bitter Cookies (Dutch Bitterkoekjes)


Always loved my bitter cookies (bitterkoekjes) when living back in the Netherlands. In the past we would bring some bags of bitter cookies with us on the plane while travelling back to Australia. However, since we created a  super easy and quick bitter cookies recipe of our own , we haven’t imported any of them.
