Dutch Treats Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min./batch + cooling YIELD:60 servings


  • 1 cup butter (no substitutes), 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


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