"The Sweet History of Dutch Cookies and Verkade's Biscuit Masterpiece"
A cookie, also known as a biscuit or meelkoekje, is the term for a type of cookie used in some Dutch dialects for a particular kind of biscuit. These cookies can be round or rectangular, crispy, light in color, and dry. A variant with coconut and sugar is often referred to as Brusselse kermis, while Albert Heijn calls its coconut biscuits Zaanse kermis.
An interesting, albeit likely incorrect anecdote claims that the Netherlands received Marshall Aid because then-Prime Minister Willem Drees received the American representative not with a state banquet but with a cup of tea and a Maria biscuit. According to the story, the representative thought that the Netherlands apparently needed the support, and a country with such a frugal prime minister would undoubtedly spend the money wisely.
Verkade is the largest biscuit producer in the Netherlands, starting biscuit production in 1911. The range quickly expanded, with names like Marie, Demi Lune, Croquette, Petit-Beurre, and Café Noir. Sales increased significantly, especially during World War I when the import of biscuits from England stagnated. In addition to tins, Verkade albums are also popular among collectors, with 35 different ones issued between 1903 and 1940, and another five after 1965.
