Steenstra’s Almond St. Claus Cookies

A holiday tradition, Steenstra’s Almond St. Claus Cookies are a type of dutch windmill cookie made in Michigan. There are five different shapes that relate to the dutch version of Santa, Sinter Klaas:  Santa Claus on a horse (his mode of travel in the Netherlands) a boy and a girl who love to receive presents; a rooster because Santa starts his day at sun up; an owl because Santa works until sun down; and a windmill because that’s where Santa lives.

While being a fun way to think about traditions in other countries, these cookies are also certified kosher and are vegan!
