Cranberry Marzipan Cookies

Cranberry Marzipan Cookies
So on to the cookies. I did indeed use this recipe but I swapped the poppy seeds with chocolate shavings. I also reduced the amount of sugar since the marzipan and chocolate are sweet as well.

They came out ok. Not as delicious as the ones I picked up in Düsseldorf but tasty nonetheless.
I just need to figure out how to make them crumbly and chewy at the same time...

  • 200 gr flour (sieved)
  • 100 gr butter (cold)
  • 50 gr sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 30 gr chocolate shavings
  • 150 gr marzipan
  • 40 gr cranberry marmalade

  1. Preheat the oven at 180 C.
  2. Combine flour, butter, sugar, salt and egg  in a bowl and mix on low speed using your dough hook. 
  3. When the egg is incorporated, continue kneading by hand in the bowl. 
  4. When dough starts to come together pull it onto a floured surface and continue kneading by hand for a minute or so.
  5. Add bits of marzipan and continue kneading until well blended.
  6. Combine flour, butter, sugar, salt and egg Combined dough Continue kneading by hand Add marzipan
  7. Add the chocolate shavings and knead through until well blended. 
  8. Pull dough onto a floured surface and continue kneading Well blended dough Add chocolate Chocolate dough
  9. Make small balls of around 2cm in diameter and place them on a sheet of wax paper. 
  10. Pat the balls down and make an indentation in the center with your thumb. 
  11. Spoon in your marmalade. 
  12. Make small balls Pat the balls down Make an indentation Spoon in your marmalade
  13. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
