Jannetje Gustafson


2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
2 tbsp. Speculaas Spice Mix (found in cookbook) or Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 1/8 stick butter
3 tbsp. milk
1 2/3 c. almond paste
1 egg lightly whisked

1. Stir flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add dark brown sugar, speculaas spice mix, butter and milk and knead until a dough forms.
2. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
3. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
4. Lightly whisk the eggs. Crumble the almond paste into a bowl. Add a little over half the egg to the almond paste. Mix the egg with the almond paste until fully incorporated.
5. Take the dough out of the fridge and divide it into two equal pieces. Roll out both pieces into a rectangle of approximately 6 inch x 12 inch. (You can roll out the dough on some cling film to make it easier to transfer).
