Steenstra's Almond Cookies
Available statewide at Meijer
These brittle, gingery cookies baked with slivers of almonds and a hint of cinnamon and clove were a classic when your grandmother was a baby. They are based on a Dutch recipe that comes by way of western Michigan, where many hail from Holland. They've remained a classic ever since the 1920s, with the only ups and downs being the motion of the cookies as they're dunked in milk. The brand is now managed by a larger firm, but the little orange packages of cookies are guaranteed to fill you with the same warm, fuzzy feelings when your pajamas had feet on them.
