Marzipan Ravioli

adapted from Lecker
  • 225 g All purpose flour
  • 70 g Powdered sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 125 g Butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100 g Marzipan, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tbsp Almond, chopped
  • 1 tsp Orange liqueur
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 25 g White chocolate (optional)
  • 25 g Dark chocolate (optional)
  1. Sift the flour, 50 grams of sugar, and salt into a mixing bowl. Add in butter, egg and vanilla extract. Mix with your fingertips until combined. Wrap the dough with a plastic film and chill for 1 hour.
  2. Place the marzipan pieces, remaining powdered sugar, chopped almonds and orange liquor in another bowl. Stir until all well combined.
  3. Remove the cookie dough from the fridge and place on a lightly floured work surface. Roll out thinly and cut into 50 squares, 2 inches by 2 inches. Mix the egg yolk and milk in a small bowl. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F.
  4. Brush half of the squares with egg wash. Place about a teaspoon marzipan filling in the center. Top with the remaining cookie squares, enclosing the filling, and crimp edges with a fork. Bake for about 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Melt the chocolates separately and drizzle over the tops of cookie raviolis. | © 2011 | | © 2011 | | © 2011 |
