A really simple recipe (to prepare it you just need a bowl, your hands and the baking tray) for some soft cookies with a delicate flavor of marzipan. The amaretto liqueur reinforces the taste of almonds, but is not strictly necessary. The dough keeps well its form while baking. Perfect with a cup of hot tea.

Instructions: Marzipan cookies
Put all the ingredients (except almonds) in a bowl.
Knead briefly all ingredients by hand until you get a smooth and homogeneous dough.
Take small pieces of the dough, form small balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Press down slightly using a bottom of a cup. Place an almond in the center and carve the edge of the dough with a fork.
Bake in a preheated static oven at 190 °C for 14 – 16 minutes.
Once removed from the oven let it cool completely before serving.
