Windmill Almond Ginger Cookie
The Steenstra family is the founder of the "Windmill Cookie". They immigrated from the Netherlands to Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1926. In 1947 they built a bakery to make their family's delicious speculaas cookie recipe. Dutch speculaas cookies became known as "Windmill Cookies" in the US. After a fire burned the bakery in 1988 the family rebuilt in Hudsonville, a town west of Grand Rapids. The Steenstra's St. Claus cookies are still made from the original family recipe, using only natural ingredients and no preservatives.
