Antwerp is also known as Koekenstad (Cookie Town), a nickname recalling the number of gingerbread bakeries and cookie factories in the old days. At Philip’s Biscuits, they are intent on preserving the craft of baking cookies. They still make their biscuits in the traditional way, by hand and using old recipes. Although they have a large variety of cookies and biscuits, make sure to try the Antwerp Hands. The light and tasty cookies refer to the famous legend of Antigoon.
