Lady finger Cookies are light and sweet sponge cakes roughly shaped like a large finger. They are called savoiardi in Italian (meaning “from Savoy”), or in French biscuits à la cuillère or boudoirs. In the UK they may be called sponge-fingers, trifle sponges or boudoir biscuits. In Persian they are called latifeh . In Dutch, they are called lange vingers, literally translating to “long fingers”. In Germany they are called Löffelbiskuit, which translates to “spoon biscuit”.
A gevulde koek is an almond cookie made of dough and butter with a sweet filling. Almond paste is the most common filler. An almond cookie with a diameter of about 10 cm, a half amandel on top. The top of the cake is shiny brown, an effect that is achieved through the dough to cover with beaten egg. It is a typical Dutch bakery item. The cookie is eaten with coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
The cheaper versions ( the one you mostly buy in the supermarket) are not always filled with almond paste, many of them filled with beans instead of almond paste.
Rondo (also called Amsterdammertje) and a canoe have the same ingredients as an almond cookie, but baked in a mold. Rondo is a round and an elongated canoe.
