I also tried some sweets: apple pie and kruukplaetjes. Although apple pie is known in more countries, the Dutch make great apple pie. They usually use cinnamon and raisins in it and sometimes they put crumbles on top. Kruukplaetjes are typical Dutch cookies, but only known in a particular area of this country (the island Goeree-Overlakkee). The teacher didn’t even know what it was until she started to work here. They are baked in a pan instead of the oven. Pretty weird, but incredibly delicious!
