Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 (7 ounce) package almond paste
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • Easy Glaze, (recipe follows)

 

EASY GLAZE

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 6 tsp. milk (6 to 7 tsp.)

 

Instructions:

Mix powdered sugar, whipping cream and eggs in large bowl with spoon. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt (dough will be stiff). Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour or until firm. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Break almond paste into small pieces in medium

bowl; add butter. Beat with electric mixer on low speed until blended. Beat on high speed until fluffy (tiny bits of almond paste will remain). Roll one fourth of dough at a time into 10-inch circle on lightly floured surface. Spread one fourth of almond paste mixture (about 1/2 cup) over circle. Cut into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges, beginning at rounded

edge. Place on ungreased cookie sheet with points underneath. Repeat with remaining dough and almond paste mixture. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Drizzle with Glaze.

 

EASY GLAZE:

Mix ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle.

 

The Belgoods Bakeware spatula set of 4 is made from 100% pure food grade silicone and stainless steel inside. More information can be found at www.amazon.com/Silicone-Spatula-Set-Multi-Purpose-Comfortable/dp/B00GQU0T68/. Cheaper brands often use plastic fillers. Fillers can compromise the quality and durability of silicone. They will last a lifetime. The nonstick qualities of silicone will make cleaning this set of 4 spatula and kitchen utensils a breeze, no scrubbing for hours. They can be cleaned in the dishwasher. The surface is stain and odor resistant.
