Kletskop – the Netherlands
Kletskop is a very thin, fragile biscuit that snaps when broken and crunches when eaten. Although butter and flour are used in this biscuit, sugar is the primary ingredient. It is baked at a very high temperature (220 °C), likely to ensure that the sugar caramelizes and turns quickly from white to brown.
Flour, butter, sugar, salt, and either almonds or peanuts are the main ingredients of the classic Dutch cookie known as Kletskop. The cookies often have a delicate, crispy texture and a cinnamon flavor. Kletskop is best served with a cup of tea or coffee on the side.
