RECIPE - KRUIDNOTEN (in english)

Sinterklaas....a very Dutch tradition with lots of good treats like marzipan, chocolate letters, pepernoten and kruidnoten. Did you know there is a difference between pepernoten and kruidnoten? The first one are chewy, soft blocks of gingerbread. Kruidnoten are smaller and are quite hard. If you have ever lived in the Netherlands or have your roots in this tiny country... it here is the recipe for kruidnoten


  • 250 gram self raising flour

  • 125 grams soft brown sugar

  • 150 gram butter

  • 2 teaspoons Dutch spice mix

  • 4 table spoons milk

  • pinch of salt

  • baking paper

How to

  • Preheat the oven at 170 degrees Celcius

  • Mix the self raising flour with butter, sugar, spice mix and a bit of salt.

  • Mix the ingredients well together

  • Add the milk and mix well until you have a smooth piece of dough

  • Make little even balls (it's easier if you first make a roll and then cut it in even pieces)

  • Put them on a baking tray with paper and press them a bit

  • Bake the kruidnoten for 20-25 minutes until they are done and light brown. Keep an eye on them at the end as the last period is crucial.
