Cookies & Biscuits/ Dutch Recipes

Kletskoppen

Macadamia Lace Cookies or ‘Kletskoppen‘ are popular cookies in the Netherlands. They go perfect with your cup of tea or coffee but also with some ice cream. It’s a delicious crispy and sweet cookie. Usually made with almonds or peanuts but today I made them with macadamia nuts.

Ingredients

  • 60 gram butter
  • 150 gram brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 60 gram flour
  • 60 gram macadamia nuts
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius

2

Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat.

3

In a small bowl add the flour, salt and cinnamon and mix well

4

Take the saucepan of the heat when the butter is melted and add sugar. Stir till combined.

5

Stir in the water.

6

Then add the flour mixture and stir through till you don't see anymore lumps.

7

Chop up the nuts and mix them through the cookie batter

8

If the batter is still too liquid, wait a couple of minutes for it to harden a bit.

9

Drop about 25 mm dollops on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. They will expand quite a bit so leave plenty of space between them. I baked 6 cookies per sheet.

10

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 6-8 minutes.

11

Let them cool completely on the baking sheet.

Notes

Be careful, do not touch the cookies with your hands when they come out of the oven. They are very hot. This recipe will make about 24 cookies.
