Daring Bakers: Gevulde Speculaas

I’m always pleased when Daring Bakers chooses a recipe I’ve never heard of; the adventure is what makes the whole group fun. That I can’t even begin to guess how to pronounce the dish’s name? Details.
Basically, the recipe is for a gingerbread/marzipan sandwich. Since I’m extremely fond of both gingerbread and marzipan, this is a very good thing! I did decide to substitute a hazelnut paste for the almond, the results were entirely satisfactory.
Blog-checking lines: Francijn of Koken in de Brouwerij was our January 2013 Daring Bakers’ Hostess and she challenged us to make the traditional Dutch pastry, Gevulde Speculaas from scratch! That includes making our own spice mix, almond paste and dough! Delicious!
