Home made cookies....orange, blueberries and almonds!


I love to have home made cookies ready for enjoying with a cup of tea or a good coffee!

I always dedicate a day a month to bake 5 or 6 kinds of cookies, and I keep them in the freezer ready to eat!

Here I have some of our favorites....





Marzipan kisses (adapted from the book "European cookies for every occasion")
Dough
250 grams of almond flour
70 grams of sugar
1 egg
3 teaspoons of flour
a pinch of salt
a pinch of baking powder

Decoration
Whole almonds 

Combine all ingredients in the mixer. Add water if necessary (not my case) until you have a soft and smooth dough. Let it rest 30 minutes in the fridge.
Make small balls with your hands. Place a whole almond on top.
Bake it at 350 F until golden. ENJOY!

Frozen blueberries

Combine all ingredients in the mixer. Add water if necessary (not my case) until you have a soft and smooth dough. Let it rest 30 minutes in the fridge.
Roll the dough with a rolling pin. Cut circles of 4 cm. Place a frozen blueberry and wrap it up.
