They’re called banket, banketstaaf or letterbanket, but here at Holland Farms, we call them Dutch almond letters and Dutch almond sticks – a delectable pastry that’s only available at Holland Farms for a limited time each year. As anyone from Holland will tell you, Dutch letters and sticks are a delicious holiday treat, and it’s easy to see why – buttery and richly flavored with almond, these treats have become one of Holland Farms’ favorite holiday offerings.
Dutch letters are available Dec 15 – Jan 15 at Holland Farms
Our Dutch almond letters and sticks (bankets) are made by first forming a log of almond paste filling. Then, we blanket the filling in buttery pastry dough, and either leave them as a stick or form them into letters. Finally, we bake them to golden brown, flaky perfection. These treats can be served right away, or can be frozen and enjoyed later on.
And, people keep coming back for our Dutch treats year after year – we have many customers from all around the country who call us each year to get their orders in early. And what’s more, we ship! Yes, Dutch sticks and Dutch letters are perfectly shippable, and make for a delectable delivery to the friends and family on your list who have everything.
From December 15 through January 15, Holland Farms offers our Dutch almond letters and sticks (bankets) in-store, and we’re also happy to fulfill your custom order. Just be sure to get your orders in by December 16, so that we can ship your Dutch treats in time for Christmas!
