I didn't know what to expect never having them before on my many trips to Holland. I don't know if I did something wrong, but they were more like big sweet cookies! Not a bad thing. A little much for breakfast. My husband is Dutch and has never heard of these treats. Would like to see some more Dutch recipes posted.

Excellent recipe, they taste just like I remember them from Holland years ago. Quick and easy to make. My kids loved them!
