These remind me of cookies my stepmother used to make. I have got to ask her for that recipe!
Last week my grandma-in-law taught me (along with my mother-in-law and sisters-in-law) how to make Banket. (For those of you who are not dutch, this is a dutch pastry using almond paste.) Since this was the first time I have ever made it, I thought I would give it a try again on my own so I would get some practice making this dutch pastry. Note this recipe needs to refrigerate overnight before completing.
4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb – 1/2 butter & 1/2 Imperial (cut into chunks)
1 C ice water
Use pastry blender to mix the first four ingredients together. Add water slowly and continue to blend. Continue mixing using your hands and quickly form a solid ball. (The less you mess with it, the better.) Spread dough out in pie plate and refrigerate overnight.
