My husband has been talking about Tompouce, a Dutch pastry he used to be able to find at a local bakery. I went looking online and found a fairly easy recipe, but the measurements were in grams and milliliters, so I had to do some converting. The original recipe calls for orange juice in the icing, but we couldn't even taste it, and my husband says he's pretty sure raspberry or strawberry extract should be used, so I've made that change accordingly.
