Dutch desserts: Gevulde Koeken, Chocoladekoek, Mergpijp
When I'm on the road, I often buy some pastries for breakfasts, or snacks-between-meals in case I get hungry while on the bus or train etc.

So I came to this cheese-shop-cum-bakery and bought a few things.

Gevulde = filled. Gevulde koeken are made with almond fillings.

Koek(en) = cake(s). It's believed that the Dutch word koekje (little cakes) was the origin of the American English word cookie. In British English, the word cookie is not commonly used, rather the Brits call 'cookies' biscuits.

Mergpijp isthe Dutch version of a Swedish cylinder sweet pastry. Read more here:
