    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.

      Being of Dutch heritage, I love anything with almond paste. I just made these bars. I used a little less sugar in both parts, used lemon juice instead of almond flavoring, used 1/4 c. applesauce, and 1/4 c. oil. I added a 1/4 tsp of baking soda. 30 minutes is all you need in a 10x14 glass pan. They look yummy. This is not diet food, but a little of this is okay. Thanks for the recipe. Hucky

      Except for cutting the sugar by 2/3 for both parts, I followed the recipe completely. THey turned out quite a bit fluffier than I had anticipated, almost with a cake-like airiness. The taste was good, but not quite what I had anticipated. I was thinking something way more dense, with the flavor packed in tight, as opposed to the dispersed flavor of airy cake.
      Still tasty :)
