Miss me? I missed you!

But I’ve been busy cooking up my most delicious creation yet… my sweet son – my Baby Chef-in-Training 🙂

As Mommy and Baby get used to our new schedule, we’ll go back to spending more time in the kitchen.

In the meantime, enjoy my Marzipan & Chocolate Chip Cookies. These babies got me through my pregnancy-induced sweet tooth.

I know – they look like plain old Chocolate Chip Cookies…

But oh no! These are Marzipan Cookiesoutrageously flavorful marzipan bombs.  Sure, there’s a touch of chocolate chip to create contrast with the intensely almond flavor, but it’s all about the marzipan.

Marzipan & Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 2 – Tubes almond paste (7-ounces each)
  • 1 cup – Granulated sugar
  • 2 – Egg whites
  • 1 cup (or more, if desired) – Chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350*
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  3. Process almond paste in a food processor until it looks like sand
  4. Add sugar and continue processing
  5. With the food processor running, stream in the egg whites and mix until you have a smooth dough
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula
  7. Wet your hands with water and form the dough into 2-tablespoon-sized balls, place on baking sheet and flatten with the palm of your hand
  8. Bake until lightly golden – 13 to 15 minutes
  9. Let cool on your baking sheet and then transfer the cookies to cooling racks to cool completely
