Grandma’s Banket

These remind me of cookies my stepmother used to make. I have got to ask her for that recipe!

Kats' Kitchen

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.

Grandma’s Banket


Day 1


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.
