This is my Grandma VanOosten's recipe. She used to make this Dutch pastry and it is delicious!

1 pound margarine
4 C flour
1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 C ice water
1 pound almont paste
2 eggs
1 egg white, beaten

Mix first 5 ingredients as for pie crust then chill. In a second bowl, mix 1 pound almond paste, crumbled with 2 eggs then chill. Divide crust and filling into 8 or 9 portions. Roll crust very thin on well floured board until it is about 1 foot in length. Roll the filling like a pencil and roll up in crust. Brush tops with beaten egg white. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 450 for 15 to 20 minutes. This may be frozen before baking. If you do that, put egg white on just before baking.
