Windmill cookie

Windmill cookie 🍪

A Windmill cookie is a type of crispy, thin, and slightly sweet cookie that is often spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg. Its distinctive shape resembles the blades of a windmill, hence the name. These cookies are popular in Dutch and Scandinavian cuisines and are enjoyed as a snack or dessert, often accompanied by tea or coffee.


100 g margarine or butter
1 egg yolk
1 cup powdered sugar
2 packs of vanilla
1 teaspoon of honey
2 tablespoons of water
A pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of cocoa
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
The glass size I use is 200 ml


We put the margarine, softened at room temperature, into the mixing bowl and add salt and powdered sugar.

Then we continue mixing the egg yolk by adding 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of water.

Then we start kneading by adding flour little by little.  We add flour and continue kneading until it becomes a dough that does not stick to the hand, is soft, and has the consistency of classic earlobe.

We separate a piece of dough the size of a tangerine, add cocoa and knead it again.

For the shape, we tear off a walnut-sized piece from plain dough.  We roll it in our palms and place the small balls we made from the cocoa dough on the dough.

We press it lightly and roll it slowly in our palms to make it take shape. After rolling, we press it very lightly.

Put the cookies in the oven preheated to 160 degrees.

Cook until they get a light color.

Cooking time is approximately 20-25 minutes.  Since this time may vary from oven to oven, do not forget to check it constantly.

Enjoy your meal.
