Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
These are not terribly sweet, which make them ideal for decorating with icing and other confections. Tina Bakker was wonderful mom to Joop Bakker, Linda Powell's high school sweetheart. This recipe was one she used as a girl growing up in Holland. She pressed the dough into small tin molds and filled them.
