Recipe by hum_butterfly

A Dutch treat, these are better than any you will find in a bakery. Be careful not to eat the whole pan ;)

I had bought some almond paste from an Amish distributor and found this recipe to try with it! These have a great texture and taste, but I was concerned with how much sugar was in them. I reduced the sugar that goes into the almond paste from 1 cup to 1/2 cup. I also added chocolate chips to the batter, and sprinkled slivered almonds on top. Finally, this recipe really needs salt. About 1/2 teaspoon added to the firstt batter component makes a major difference! Yummy.
