The Dutch term for a cookie with almond paste inside is “vulkoek” (or “vulde koek”). at the Netherlands, it is incredibly popular, and you can get them at bakeries and supermarkets all across the country.
They are a cross between an almond paste-filled pastry (amandelspijs) and a buttery, crumbly biscuit.Two layers of buttery, flaky pastry with almond paste sandwiched between them are used to make these cakes. The flavor is delicious, and the taste is amazing! The cake has a wonderful texture, with a rich, buttery dough and a soft, chewy almond paste in the center.
