Like Dreamer, I too had difficulties shaping these cookies and having them hold the shape and the filling during baking. The flavor is lovely---perhaps practice will make perfect.
These little cookies are delicious and quite quick to make. That being said, I did have a problem with the marzipan leaking out of about 1/2 of the cookies. I baked them in two batches and with the 2nd batch I was extra careful to make sure the dough was sealed but some of the cookies still leaked. I'm not sure what I did wrong. Probably I need to practice. The marzipan that oozed out of the cookies became crispy and delicious, too. Made for Sweet Traditions Tag. A post script to my review: DH wants me to make these again. He loved them so I'll definitely get a chance to practice.
