DUTCH BAKERY RUSKS
In the Netherlands, Beschuit is traditionally a crunchy, delicious alternative to bread.
For the Dutch rusk, a long round loaf is baked and then cut into slices. Then the slices are baked again. The name "Beschuit" is derived from the Italian word "biscotto", which means "baked twice". The crispy Beschuit can be topped with savory or sweet toppings. Beschuit is traditionally distributed in the Netherlands for the birth of a child. Beschuit is sprinkled with pink and white muisjes when a girl is born, and with blue and white muisjes when a boy is born.
The handy notch in each Beschuit makes it very easy to get them out of the packaging!
