Why these cakes are so delicious!

these nuts to bake some traditional Frisian cookies called Fryske Dumkes

The name derives from the Dumke the traditional way of making. There are several

explanations for the name Dumke. The baker cut a long flat strip of dough to

size of a thumb, the size of the Dumkes, so the greater the greater the thumb

cookie. Another explanation is that the Dumke looks like a thumb.
