Adolfina Cookies (Peanut And Succade – Candied Peel – Cookies)
Adolfina cookies, I guess you’re wondering what those are. To be honest, I didn’t know what they were either until I came across a recipe for them in an old Surinamese cookbook (Groot Surinaams Kookboek/Extensive Surinamese Cookbook). The recipe was interesting for me enough to try it, and I have to say I don’t regret it for one second. These turned out absolutely delicious! I didn’t want to stop eating them, they were so good. I just have to share the recipe so you can enjoy them too!
Adolfina cookies are peanut and succade (candied peel) cookies. The combination of the peanut and succade is absolutely delicious.
Oh, and don’t ask me why these are called Adolfina cookies, I’ve no clue. The recipe didn’t say, all I can think of is that probably someone named Adolfina created them. But don’t take my word for it, it’s just a wild guess.
