Sint is here again

That calls for 'pepernoten'. It is a lot of work, but I try to bake them myself each year at least once on the day Sinterklaas foot on Dutch ground. I had helping hands but they soon gave up, only to come back when the spice nuts came out of the oven. I always like to add orange zest to the standard recipe. Mmm.

HmmmmjaM! Home made pepernoten! They definetely are on my to do list! I went to the Sinterklaas Intocht for the first time with my baby girl, it was so exciting and moving. It's a great idea to commit yourself to baking them at the intocht each year. A great ritual!
