Can add some sugar to the Almond filling if you like…Almond lovers rejoice!…I am from Holland…This traditional Dutch sweet treat, from the Netherlands(Holland), is called Banketstaaf, serve during December 5th celebration, when Sinterklaas comes to town…It’s sheer luxury, to bite into this crispy, flaky top, and to taste the sweet pure almond paste…Who can say “no” to this dessert..The best part?…It’s not only good to eat, but incredibly easy to make…So easy that it should be illegal…Making from scratch is easy too!…

Erica’s Dutch almond pastry “Banketstaaf” pastry recipe:
Ingredients:
1 package of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry sheets
1 or 2 box of pure almond Paste (8oz)
1 tablespoon of sugar to your liking, taste, or none at all
1 egg
Parchment paper
wax paper
Directions:
Remove 2 frozen pastry sheets from box and paper wrapping…
Thaw at room temperature for 40 minutes, so the pastry sheets can unfold easily…Thawed sheets should still be cold…
Preheat oven to 400° F…
Line a cooking baking sheet with parchment paper…
Lay both thawed pastry sheets on it…
In a small bowl beat 1 eggs with a fork…Set aside…
In a small bowl place almond paste and sugar(optional), smash it into piece with a fork…Can use extra paste for each pastry if you like more of a almond taste…
Add and mix only “half” of the beaten egg into the almond paste, with a fork, and then form a ball with your hands…
Divide the almond paste dough ball into half, for each pastry dough…On a piece of wax paper, so it won’t stick, roll each half almond paste dough into a log, about 1 inches shorter than the pastry sheet lengthwise…Or roll it with your hands, or just drop and spread almond paste on the dough…
Carefully place each prepared almond paste log on each pastry sheet, not on the middle, but not quite on the edge…
Fold, roll, and press the edges, with the seam on the bottom…
With the “left over” beaten egg, paint and brush with your fingers, the entire pastry roll, top to bottom, including the edges and the bottom seam…
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown…Remove from the oven and let it cool…Serve with tea or coffee…Lekker!…It means, delicious in Dutch…
Enjoy!…Love and hugs, Erica
