A wonderful very-difficult-to-find Dutch recipe from a Dutch friend of mine. Delicious and addicting.
My husband's family is Dutch and this is a recipe from the Netherlands that is a great tasting pastry using almond paste. Enjoy!
Dutch Letter Cookies
These are delicious, tender, flaky cookies filled with almond paste. They are the first ones to disappear at our house during the holidays. You can shape them into any letter you desire, try spelling out names or greetings.
Holland Butter Cookies
These cookies are delightful all year round. Buttery and light they will melt in your mouth.
This is a Dutch buttery bar cookie, baked in a round tin, and cut into wedges after baking. Instead of vanilla or lemon zest, you can flavor these with 4 ounces of ground almonds.
This recipe has become a cherished family favorite, and it all began in 1965 with my older brother's 2nd grade teacher sharing it with our mother. Melt-in-your-mouth good! At holiday time, add festive sprinkles on top while chocolate is still soft. Enjoy!
