The name Antwerp came from a myth about a giant’s hand that was cut off and tossed into the river, so the symbol of a hand is the unofficial icon of the city, and thus the shape of the Antwerpen cookie. These butter cookies topped with sliced almonds are ubiquitous, but Philip’s Biscuits makes some of the best.
