So I decided to bake it up and bring these bars to Josh's family's Thanksgiving and found out that the good people of Eastern Iowa do not know about Dutch Letters (gasp!). Apparently, Dutch Letters are popular in Central Iowa but haven't found fame and glory outside of this region. For shame.
Ahem, pardon the taste test. The bars are true dessert bars. No flaky pastry like the real deal, but the almond taste is spot on.
