Oh, photos-that's a good idea! After Eight are soft, Thin Mints are crunchy:


Yum, yum!

Dutch girlscouts don't make and sell cookies, they only eat them. Smile
I have asked my niece who is seven and a member of the Brownies. She can't give you an advice, because she likes all the cookies, especially those with chocolat. She must have that from her auntie Wink

Akka, when you are in Venlo, go to the Kruidvat and look for oreo's. I have bought them there once. I was immediately addicted. Did one of you see the film Parent trap? The girls eat oreo's, with peanut butter.
I haven't tried that yet.

Mmm, I must find out what the best cookies are to eat while watching a PMG-movie!

The best cookies to nibble whilst watching PMG
flicks, hmm? I always go for Madeleines. They're
technically little cakes, but, oh, they're perfect!
So sinfully delicious-like him-and they go great with
a cup of tea!

Very Happy That is a good description! Mmm. madeleines, I love them. I thought about some Dutch cookies which will fit this description.

We have stroopwafels. These are waffles filled with a mixture of butter and treacle (= stroop). You can buy them everywhere, but they taste the best if you buy them in a bakerstore or at the market, when they just have been made. They look like this:




And we have Arnhemse Meisjes, a kind of biscuit. Arnhem is a city in Holland and meisjes means girls. They are made of puff pastry, but the original recipe uses pastry tha's used to make bread. They are very adictive! Roals Dahl has an anecdote about them in his cookbook.

Try the Kruidvat or otherwise the supermarket C1000. They might have them as well. But I can't garantee that.

I can say it with absolute certainty, Madeleines
go very well with PMG! I had them for "Sea of Souls"
last night. Mm! Mm! Very Happy Very Happy

To be honest, I tend to alternate them with chocolate
ice cream! A PMG works classic accompaniment! Soft...
spoonable...delicious! *Sigh*

Maybe I can locate a recipe for chocolate Madeleines!
Triple whammy!

They remind me of pizzelles, which are Italian cookie type things that are also very popular in South Philadelphia. They're made from a thin, anise and vanilla flavored batter, made in special pizzelle irons, which are sort of like waffle irons.

And they are yummy. I like to break them into pieces and scoop up blobs of chocolate ice cream with them:

Denise you're bringing back memories from when I lived in Brooklyn and my neighbor used to make those for us. I may have to get one of those irons for myself.

South Philadelphia sounds alot like Brooklyn, I definitely have to visit soon.
