Confectionery recipe for your Christmas baking

A dedicated day for Christmas baking is a cherished tradition in Camilla's family. On this day, the whole family gathers and the kitchen becomes the gathering place for Christmas magic. The kitchen buzzes with life as big and small voices hum along to the tunes of Christmas music and the oven spreads the scent of Christmas cookies. Camilla and her mother help each other with the Christmas confections, which quickly disappear as hungry hands approach. This year, Camilla has found this delicious recipe from Louisa Lorang's book 'Konfekt' to delight young and old alike - of course with the help from our new Check collection with aprons, oven mitts and organic tea towels. 

Recipe for pistachio marzipan bread - 18 pieces:

  • 100 g pistachios
  • 200 g marzipan
  • 1-2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Approx. 200 g dark chocolate for coating
  • 1/2 dl coarsely chopped pistachios
  • 1 tsp. coarsely crushed cardamom seeds

  1. Blend the pistachios very finely. Preferably in a coffee grinder, so that they become a fine, green flour.
  2. Mix the pistachios with the marzipan and combine with the syrup. Add cardamom and a pinch of salt.
  3. Form about 18 small marzipan loaves and chill them while the chocolate is being prepared.
  4. Melt the chocolate over a water bath and coat the marzipan loaves - sprinkle with pistachios and cardamom.
  5. Allow the chocolate to set and serve the marzipan loaves chilled.
