funny name: Kruidnoten or Kruidnoot
funny, because it derives from Dutch. no idea what it means. but I know that is the name of small ball-shaped spice cookies, which are given away by Zwarte Pietów, Black Peter during Sinterklaas – Santa Claus. 5th of December in the Netherlands and 6th in Belgium.
is this recpe the original one? I don’t know. I found it somewhere in Internet. if it’s not – I don’t bother – I don’t care. they are very similar, delicious, and, most importantly, the quickest, and the easierst gingerbreads I have ever made. they are perfect if you don’t have much time to do gingerbreads that are time-consuming.
I can smell the specific scent of spice. cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cardamon.
the warm, light kitchen. the oven on.
masculine, manful, caring hands around my waist. kisses on my neck. I felt Christmas at the time. they are definitely coming.
