Rascal or Spritzbueb cookie
Rascal or Spritzbueb cookie

Het lijkt erop dat een veel moeite om deze mooie koekjes te maken voor een bepaald slechte kleine jongen in de familie, but this was indeed the case for these Spitzbub cookies. Loosely translated from Swiss-German to English, De naam spitzbub betekent min of meer, a clever little rascal. I guess the name for the cookie is indeed self-explanatory, de meeste kleine jongens zijn boefjes, en de meeste kleine jongens houden van deze cookie! De cookie is zeker, a Swiss tradition. Every bakery features the over-sized version of this cookie for all the local little rascals (boy or girl). This is a double layer cookie which usually features a cut out from the top middle layer. The cookie is filled with your favorite home-made jelly, then finished with a nice light sprinkling of powder sugar. This is a favorite recipe for my little rascals.
