To explain fully, a little history lesson is needed. In the 1600s, the Dutch East India Company brought East Indian spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, cardamom, and ginger to Europe. Over the centuries, these spices became intertwined in Dutch cuisine and are now an important flavor profile in traditional Dutch recipes.
For example, the "crust" of The Bake Bike's award-winning Dutch Apple Tart can almost stand alone as a flavorful spice cookie. But it's only improved with the addition of a special blend of local apple varieties and plump raisins.
Serve it room temperature or warm, with whipped cream or ice cream.
