Oliebollen at Tarisota

The lovely Tamar from tarisota used one of my Dutch oliebollen recipes for her recipe book that you can download this month here. It's a traditional recipe that we eat on new years eve. I've made them every year since we moved to Australia, even in 30+C heat. Can't go without them!! This year I'll be making them again for my family and friends.
Another typical Dutch recipe is the one of pepernoten. I made them with Ruby her kindergarten class the other week. It uses a variety of spices wich is always lovely I think. Kids like to smell and taste all the different spices too. We eat the pepernoten around the celelebration of Sinterklaas (St. Nicolas). His helpers throw them around the room for the kids to grab.

Maybe you would like to try them too.

Here is the recipe.



50 g butter (1 3/4 oz)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 cup self raising flour

The spices
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground aniseed
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1. Cream the butter and sugar, then add spice mix (or spices).

2. Add the flour and milk and make very small marble sized balls.

3. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 160 C (320 F) until golden.

I popped a few pepernoten in a bag for each kid and closed them with a tag.
If you would like the tags too just email me and I'll send them to you. Haven't figured out how to add a pdf to my blog.

Enjoy :)

Thanks for sharing, Manon!
One of my very besties (coincidentally my sister in law) is Dutch heritage. When we have Christmas with her I love to partake of these kind of goodies!

They look really yummy Manon. My hubby is German & has talked about having biscuits like this when he was a kid. I'll have to make him a batch.
Merry Christmas to you & your family.
