Marzipan Cookies

"These were based upon Bergy's 'World's Best Cookies', but I think these truly may it! This large, soft cookie is like biting into warm marzipan. At least it is if you eat them as soon as they pop out of the oven (as I have been known to do!)."

  1. These were really good cookies! I only gave it 4 stars though because I had to change the recipe a little after breaking a wooden spoon while mixing the dough. I did get a good upper body work out before adding 1 more egg and 1/4 cup of water. I also used bran cereal next time I may play with it a little and used corn flakes.
  2. not so wonderful threw out batter threw out cookies my only thought is that the recipe means to use one cup of bran cereal, and then crush it (rather than a whole cup of crushed cereal) if i were to make this recipe again... i would use a different recipe
