Kroontjes koekjes crown cookies sidepicll

Today we bake Linzer cookies filled with apricot jam and we stick out small crowns, because in just a few days it will be King's Day! We also cut crowns from fondant icing, because we have nice little cutters for it and because our mini monsters like fondant icing so much. Besides, the crowns make the cookie tray look extra festive ;))

Here is how you make Linzer Crown Cookies
