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 and unique texture. The amaretto liqueur reinforces the taste of almonds, but is not strictly necessary. The dough keeps well its form while baking.
- 160 g all-purpose flour
- 50 g potato starch
- 150 g marzipan
- 80 g soft butter
- 60 g brown sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp amaretto liqueur (I used Disaronno) (optional)
- some shelled almonds for decoration (optional)
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 with the bottom of a cup (or by hand), insert 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.
