This recipe was soooo yummy. Both of my parents are from the Netherlands, my mom use to make Boterkoek when I was a little girl. We still have her recipe but the measurements are in dutch and was very hard for me to convert.. I made this for my Mom and she loved it, said it tasted just like her recipe.. Thank you
