This is my husbands trademark recipe! He immigrated to the US after we married (from Holland) and 'brought to here' some of his most loved recipes from back home that he wasnted to continue to make here. This is one of his (and my) favorites. Keep in mind that it's a very sweet almond roll... so you don't want to take HUGE pieces when slicing. It's really good with a nice hot cup of coffee! It also makes quite a bit, so we enjoy making it around the holidays and giving a few of the 'rolls' to family! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

I was raised with two main pastries in my life, Stroopwaffles and Banket. This recipe reminds me of my Oma.
