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.
