Dutch Treats

 Dutch Treats
I was born and raised in Holland, where we used almond paste quite often in our baking. I created this recipe to capture the outstanding flavors of home.
60 ServingsPrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min./batch + cooling


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 can (8 ounces) almond paste, cut into cubes
  • Sliced almonds


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until light and
  • fluffy. Gradually add the flour. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or
  • until easy to handle.
  • Roll into 1-in. balls. Press dough onto the bottom and up the sides
  • of ungreased miniature muffin cups; set aside.
  • For filling, in a small bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add sugar until
  • blended. Beat in the almond paste. Spoon a rounded teaspoonful into
  • each cup; top each with three almond slices.
  • Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned and
  • filling is set. Cool for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks.
