Finishing up the zandkoekjes – 20 minutes

Pre-heat the oven to a temperature of 180 degrees Celsius or 355 Fahrenheit. Dust your work surface with flour, then roll out the dough until about half a centimeter thick.

Use the cookie cutter to create cookies. Place the cookies on the pre-lined baking tray. Repeat until all of the dough has been used up. Bake the cookies in the oven until golden-brown, this should take about 15 minutes depending on the oven.

Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool off completely, enjoy!
