Original Recipe From Alkmaar
Jodekoeken were made famous by a baker called Davelaar, in Alkmaar. In 1883, the Stam bakery in Alkmaar started selling delicious cookies that were called jodekoeken, and Dirk Davelaar took over this bakery in 1924. Thanks to Dirk Davelaar, the popularity of Jodekoeken off and the cookies became a success inside and outside of Alkmaar. His extensive efforts through advertising in local newspapers and by offering the cookies at other shops, paid off as his “jodekoeken” became a popular product to all people in Holland. To cope with increasing demand, production of the cookies was moved to a new purpose-built factory where as of today, the company continues to bake them according to its original recipe from 1883.
Delicious Dutch Cookies
A “jodekoek” (literally "Jewish cookie") is a flat, round shortbread cookie with a diameter of about 10 centimeters. Some claim that the recipe originates from a Jewish baker in Amsterdam, other sources say the name has nothing to do with Jews, but that a baker with surname “de Joode” invented the cookies. Jodekoeken are exported to other countries but, because of the difficulty of the name explanation, on certain occasions the export product is called Dutch Cookies.
