Here's what you'll need...
7 ounces marzipan paste or almond paste
1 cup sugar
3 sticks unsalted butter, softened
4 large eggs, separated
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 drops green food coloring, or to desired color
10 drops red food coloring, or to desired color
12-oz jar seedless raspberry jam
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
Here's what to do...
I use this recipe. If you search around on the web, there are a few similar recipes. I do make a few changes. I add a bit more coloring to both the green and red dough (as noted above) to deepen the color. I don't have three 9x13 pans (only one), so I cook each dough separately. I let the layers set for about four hours before adding the chocolate, and then let it cool over night. I cover the sheet of cookies and then cut the next morning.
