As some of you may know, I"m first generation Dutch-American. I moved to America in 1974 when I was 11 years old, after 5 years in Canada via The Netherlands. Because I'm the original Carb Queen, I love desserts, especially those with almond paste, which the Dutch excel at.
My mother was kind enough to send a box of Dutch treats our way, which arrived today - all my favorites! Thanks Mom. She orders them from a company located in Wyoming, Michigan, near Grand Rapids, not far from where we live. Their name is Vander Veen and their webstore is here http://thedutchstore.com/
For dessert tonight, we enjoyed boterkoek or butter tart with almond paste.
