Marzipan cookies

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.

Marzipan cookies


  • 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.
