Chocolate Cookies Filled With Marzipan

Still don't find any perfect season cookies? Try this one. Recipe taken from a book titled "Chocola" from Christine McFadden and Christine France. They are very easy to make, filled with marzipan which is loved by the children and the appearance looks really good for any occasions especially forthcoming christmas.

200 gr soft unsalted butter
200 gr light brownsugar
1 egg
300 gr flour, sifted
4 tablespoons cacao powder, sifted
200 gr white marzipan

White sugar glaze or
melting white chocolate

1. Pre-heat the oven at 190°C.
2. Whisk the butter and sugar, add the egg in the mixture. Whisk all thoroughly.
3. Add the flour and cacao powder. Mix well using the wooden-spoon until the dough can be kneaded.
4. On a floured surface roll half of the dough until 5 mm thick by using rolling-pin.
5. Cut the cookies using cookies cutter, filled with small balls of marzipan then cover with another layer of flower-shapes dough.
6. Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Leave them to cool on the wire rack.
7. Decorate with melting white chocolate or white sugar glaze.
