Need Help Remembering this Cookie Name Wed, 01/28/04 3:04 PM (permalink)
Does anybody remember or know of a cookie that was sort of like a graham cracker, but maybe a little bit sweeter, and had slivered almonds in it? I think the name had something to do with Holland. I can't find these anywhere, and I'd sure like to have some. My Dad used to buy them when we were kids.

    They're (Holland) Almond Windmill Cookies. Read more at: http://www.ajc.com/living/content/living/food/goddess/0912.html . FYI.

      I remember those. Mostly because as a kid I hated nuts in cookies and I was always really disappointed when those cookies turned up for milk breaks at school.

        We always got some kind of cookie that ALWAYS had pink icing, a rather large cookie, maybe with a scalloped edging...they were pretty good. Remember that one???

          I remember a pink frosted cookie that was a spice cookie. The windmill cookies are made by Archway and sold in our local supermarkets.I love them with a cup of tea.

            Thanks for bringing back a great memory of my dad always buying those for us at the grocery store. In the old days they were in big bins and you put them in bakery bags.

                Dearfolk,
                We might be thinking of Jan Hagel, "A real Dutch cookie," that was marketed circa 1962 by - I believe it was - Nabisco. Those were frightfully similar to windmill cookies. I mention the Jan Hagel (and I think that's the right spelling!) jingle on the "remember that song" thread.
                My favorite cookies are still homemade-from-scratch peanut butter!
                Uncrunchingly, Ort. Carlton in No-Food-In-Library Athens, GA.

                  Jan Hagel. That's the exact cookie you described Skylar. I remember it well. Good job, Ort.Carlton

                    I think Ort is right..I believe they were called Jan Hagel. I really liked those-wish I could find some now. And yes, I do remember those cookies with the pink icing and the scalloped edges...I can't remember what they were called, but I remember them very well.

                      Almond Windmill cookies are made by a number of manufacturers. In Chicago, I still buy the Salerno brand.

                        I remember Jan Hagel from high school. Her parents owned a popular fish and chips joint. They were convicted of battering fish and child abuse. Jan went nuts and cracked. She eventually moved back to the Netherlands and wed this guy named Salerno, who buttered her up, but it was better than being battered. I always hated those windmill cookies!

                          That was quite a story, chi-dog. Seems old Jan led a hell of a life, but I guess that's just the way the cookie crumbles.

                            Was she a cute little cookie? Did she have lots of dough?

                              Jan Hagel's - one of my favorite cookies growing up. They came in a blue bag that rolled down to keep them fresh.

                                  I felt it was finally time to come out of the cookie jar. Can't explain the serose edges. Could've been an accident at birth when the doctors slapped my mother instead of me.
