Filled almond pastry. (Gevulde speculaas)

This is absolutely my favorite recipe when it becomes cold, and the holidays are starting.
Everybody loves it, and I have to make him actually already almost every weekend. It is delicious with the cold weather, a cup of hot tea or lactose-free chocolate milk, and you’re immediately in the for the famous Dutch  “Sinterklaas” mood!
