Why You’ll Love This: The dual texture of these cookies is a standout feature—you’ll adore the crisp edges that give way to a soft, marzipan-rich middle.

Decoration Tips: After baking, while the cookies are still warm, consider dusting them with an additional layer of powdered sugar for a snowy, festive look. You can also press a whole almond into the center of each cookie before baking for added crunch and presentation. If you’re feeling creative, drizzle them with a thin glaze or dark chocolate for a decadent touch.
