Are you ready for some Christmas baking? I sure have been for a while now. In fact, I’ve been having kind of a hard time deciding which of the winter Christmas-time-suiting snacks to prepare. Too many options and too little time on my hands!
But, I tell you, these Christmas Keto Marzipan Cookies, which are a tradition in Europe (especially in Germany), are unbelievably quick and easy to prepare. More so if you’ve already got some marzipan at hand.
Before you turn away just because they might not be much to look at, give them a try, and you will change your mind completely with the first bite. They taste wonderful. Besides, Christmas should not be about the looks; it’s what’s inside that counts, right?
Obviously, I don’t intend to convince you that Japanese green tea matcha powder has much to do with Christmas. Or with the German tradition of marzipan cookies. Unless the two cultures happen to collide, there is no real pressure on using matcha in the marzipan, unless you are a matcha lover and like to play around with flavors as I do.
I made these with matcha marzipan because I had some left in the freezer. You can omit the matcha green tea powder altogether. The last time I served some matcha marzipan to some colleagues of mine, they thought they were eating pistachio. They claimed they tasted pistachio just because they saw the green color. That was an interesting finding that I might play around with some more in the future.
