Mandarin Marzipan Cookies

今天这个Mandarin Marzipan Cookies 将是我上新年饼的最后一个贴子了。冲冲的将行李整理好,把桔子曲奇照片弄好,然后整理好食谱,然后再赶去上班,然后赶去塔飞机,然后就是一家团圆!哇,听起来真的好忙。

终于收工咯!在这里向大家拜个早年, 祝大家新年快乐,万事如意!


225g almond paste {marzipan}
225g butter, softened
30g granulated sugar
30g confectioner’s sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp almond emulsion or extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
Orange gel color
whole cloves
green plastic icing (for leafs)


1. Soften the almond paste in the microwave. About 20 seconds should do. Combine the butter and almond paste and beat until well combined.

2. Add both sugars and beat until fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and enough of the gel paste to tint the mixture red.

3. Finally sift together the flour and salt and add it to the creamed mixture, mixing until a soft dough forms. If the dough is not dark enough, add more coloring.

4. Make 10g little balls. Drop them onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Insert a clove as the stem. Chill for one hour.

5. After chilling, bake at 180C for 10-12 minutes.

6. Roll out green plastic icing and cut into leaf shape. Attach leafs on cookies.
