Dutch children leave wooden shoes at the fireplace to be filled by Sinterklaas on December 6th, St. Nicholas' Eve. Those who have been good will find, among other presents, chocolate candy or these almond-filled cakes in the shape of their first initial. These usually range from 2 or 3 inches to 8 inches in height.
Yield: 10 letters 1 to 3 inches tall, or 2 large letters.
