Traditional Frankfurts Bethmännchen


  • 250 g marzipan
  • 80 g sugar powdered
  • 40 g flour
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 65 g ground almonds
  • 50 g almond halfs
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Take a large bowl and mix together: marzipan, powdered sugar, flour, ground almonds and egg white.

  2. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

  3. Prepare a medium size bowl with a cold water and make sure you keep your hands wet while dealing with marzipan. Form small cones (higher then an almond halve) from the dough and decorate each one with 3 almond halves. Remember to keep you hand wet!

  4. Bake for 10 minutes.

  5. Mix water with egg yolk and after 10 minutes has passed, brush your cookies using just a little bit of egg mixture. We just want the top of the cookie to be nice and brown!

  6. Bake your cookies for another 5 minutes.
