Boterkoek: very Dutch and totally unhealthy
Yesterday I made one for a potluck. It's an easy one because the ingredients are always at hand and it takes little time to prepare.
Shock and horror: it is full of butter and sugar. And it's very popular :)
250 gr flour
225 gr lightly salted cold butter
150 gr caster sugar
a pinch of salt
Cut the butter in pieces
Mix flour, sugar and salt
Rub the butter in the flour mixture with your fingers. Keep rubbing until it forms a ball.
Press the dough into a round cake tin (diameter 24)and spread evenly
Spread a few drops of milk over the surface (makes a nice crust)
Make a pattern with a fork (optional but very professional)
20 to 30 minutes in the oven at 160 degrees
Cut small pieces and enjoy...
