Kruidnootjes Frangipane Tart

A Dutch Holiday-themed frangipane tart. Amazing spice flavors from the Kruidnootjes combined with soft and creamy almond frangipane. This tart works great with ginger snaps too! Perfect easy pie for the holidays.


Only three more weeks until Sinterklaas! I’m not doing anything special, but there’s just something about holidays that get me excited. Maybe it’s the themed food. Or just food. Probably the latter. 😉

Last week I shared a Sinterklaas(/Christmas) ice cream with you guys. (It’s no churn!) Silky smooth with salted caramel and kruidnootjes! And today’s recipe will be revolved around kruidnootjes all over again. And it’s going to be SO GOOD. My taste testers dived right in and after all crumbs were devoured they demanded the recipe asap. And if you’re looking for a Christmas recipe, keep on reading and substitute the kruidnootjes with ginger snaps. Yes, it’s okay to think of Christmas recipes in November. Read more

NO CHURN Holiday Salted Caramel Ice Cream

Super smooth and creamy NO CHURN salted caramel ice cream with chunks of spice cookies. Super easy and perfect for the holidays.


As the days are getting darker, the holiday-spirit grows inside of me. The cold weather is really awful, but the warm holiday spirit definitely makes things better. I love holidays. To me, it symbolizes family. Sitting with my family around the christmas tree and seeing faces light up when they open the present I’ve been brewing on since spring. In The Netherlands, December has another holiday called “Sinterklaas“. It’s more or less like Christmas, but this “Santa Claus” comes from Spain and arrives by boat in The Netherlands. When Sinterklaas drops by, you get “kruidnootjes“, which are Dutch ginger/spice cookies. These cookies are the size of small amaretti biscuits and are só addicting. It’s like Pringles: once you pop, you can’t stop. If you ever drop by The Netherlands after summer, you HAVE to try these.

In awaiting of Sinterklaas (December 5th), I decided to make a delicious ice cream revolved around this holiday for you guys. It’s NO CHURN, has plenty of kruidnootjes mixed in and is swirled with (homemade) salted caramel. Although I made this recipe for the Dutch holiday, you can easily substitute the kruidnootjes with ginger cookies and turn this ice cream into a delicious Christmas edition. I bet this is one of the easiest delicious holiday dessert recipes you’ll find.

How excited are you for the holidays? What are your plans so far?
