Marzipan Shortbread Cookies

This was not planned. I’ve already made enough cookies for Christmas party this year. But then I saw the recipe for Marzipan Shortbread Cookies on Pinterest, and I just couldn’t resist them. Love marzipan, love shortbread ♥ ♥ ♥

I didn’t have any marzipan at home, but it turned out that was not a big obstacle. Just put some slivered almonds, powdered sugar, an egg white and almond extract in your food processor, mix for a minute – and there is your marzipan.

Also, I don’t own beautiful cookie stamps required for these cookies, so I used my wooden molds for making Black Pepper Cookies. Of course, if you don’t have any molds or stamps, you can just cut your cookies with regular cookie cutters.

I made a double batch of cookies and that was a right decision (you bet!).
They have a mild marzipan taste. If you would prefer stronger flavor, add an additional 1/4 tsp almond extract to the dough.

A message for all Marzipan Shortbread Cookie lovers: this is divine!!! more...
