My father was Dutch baker and specialized in these classic Dutch cookies. I was determined to find a recipe that would rival the ones he used to make. We called them Windmill cookies back then because he used a windmill mold to shape the dough. I found a passable recipe on Martha Stewart's site a while back, but I really wanted to perfect the spices. I was able to find a great combination of spices on a Dutch website, so I combined the recipes and came up with these! Now I just need the windmill mold and they will be perfect....
