What to do with your leftover pepernoten?

So for the Dutchies out there. Sinterklaas is over and people will be massively shopping for their x-mas trees today. Almost everyone will recognise the fact that after Sinterklaas evening, they are having leftover pepernoten (officially kruidnoten. So today I will share some recipe that will fix your pepernoten problem :)

Bake a cake! In this pepernotencake you can toss 100 gr of the leftover cookies. Even if they have gone a bit stale, because they will turn soft in the oven anyway.

Are you more a dessert person, then try this pepernoten trifle. This is surely a good choice when you are eating with your family tonight, to hold on to this Sinterklaas feeling a little longer.

More into chocolate? These speculaas brownies can also be made with pepernoten. No problem at all :)

Lastly I want to share this cheesecake with a Dutch twist. Replace the bastogne cookies in the recipe by pepernoten and you are good to go!

I hope you all enjoyed Sinterklaas evening. We watched How to Train Your Dragon 2, while nomming on Sinterklaas candy and drinking hot chocolate. That is not traditional at all, but it was cozy.

Starting next week, we will be baking Christmas goods, so look forward to that :)
