    Molly53's Note:

    Marzipankartoffeln are baby potatoes made from marzipan and are traditionally given to friends in little bags or placed on the goodie plate at Christmastime. One can buy ground almonds as almond flour or as almond meal. If those are unavailable, blanch two cups of almonds, peel and finely grind in your food processor. Originally, the binder would have been an egg white, but because of health concerns, it's been left out of this recipe. Courtesy of Jennifer McGavin.

      My husband loves marzipan potatoes and has eaten them annually since he was a kid. I followed this recipe to surprise him with some homemade marzipan...but we found the marzipan to be a bit inedible in the end. The Rosewater is simply too overpowering and he felt like he was eating perfume. I'd suggest toning down the rosewater a bit...thanks!
