I like marzipan in other things. Can't eat it solo though

There's a block in the kitchen and I'm having to restrain myself from just going and taking a bite out of it.

I'm with krazywookie. The best thing to do with marzipan is to encase it in concrete and hurl it into the sea.

POTW for correctness

Thought I’d give my mince pies with marzipan top a go. I overfilled them (is that even possible? Yes), but they are otherwise perfect. They taste amazing.

Other than the slightly sticky bit on the top 5-8mm of pastry due to overfill, they are perfect.

Should have made the pastry cases 10cm instead of 9cm rounds.

Used the rest of the shortcrust with some grated sharp cheddar and parmesan, black pepper and a sprinkle of cayenne for some savoury biscuits, which are just baking now.

Thank you! They do taste really nice.

I’ve got to make another batch on Christmas Eve or Father Christmas will have to share the reindeer’s carrots.

My MiL makes mince pies with a marzipan later underneath the mince. They're great!

I did consider something similar. Or grating/finely chopping some into the mincemeat, but I do really love toasted/baked marzipan so it makes a good ‘lid’.

Marzipan is beautiful, you monster.

If I weren’t eating a whole box of Marzipan fruits on Boxing Day as a kid then Christmas had gone terribly wrong.

I wouldn’t ruin marzipan but sullying it with fruit. I like fruit, but marzipan is better.

I’ve made some mince pies. Different from last year’s marzipan topped ones, these are gingerbread mince pies.

A short and slightly sweet gingerbread pastry with ginger and cinnamon, filled with a mixture of mincemeat and some very finely chopped stem ginger in syrup (with some of the syrup added).

I’m freezing them like this, will take out of the tray once they’re frozen in a day or two, then I’ll pop them in a bag. On Christmas Eve or whatever apparently they’ll cook from frozen just fine.

Oh, and little gingerbread man lids.
