    I would love to make these! Did you use true almond paste or marzipan paste?

  21. I used the almond paste from a tube, that’s all I could find. I got 37 cookies, total…not sandwiches, cookies. The dough was so runny, there was no way to roll in into anything. Yes, I put it in the fridge for two hours. I had to use my cookie scoop to get them to the pans. They were delicious cookies, but not worth the $6.99 I paid for the almond paste and then only get 37 cookies. I don’t know what I did wrong, but I don’t know that I will be making these again. I just drizzled the icing (filling) and white chocolate on top, so I would at least have more than 18 sandwich cookies.

    These are so pretty and look delicious!!!  I would like to make these a couple of days in advance for an event.  How should I store them?  Do I put in tupperware with top fitting lid or store loosely on trays with foil or cling wrap?
