Gold Medal Flour - Marzipan Cookies Vintage Recipe

A few weeks ago I lugged over a box of recipes from my great aunties house. All of the recipes in this box are vintage ones that she cut out of magazines, booklets and newspapers many years ago. They are all yellowed, tattered and faded.

The following recipe is one that she had cut from a Gold Medal Flour advertisement in a magazine and it is to make Marzipan Cookies.

Gold Medal Flour Marzipan Cookies Recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2-3 drops yellow food coloring
1/8 tsp. almond flavoring
1 1/4 cups sifted Gold Medal Enriched Flour

Cream butter, sugar, food coloring, almond flavoring together. Stir in the sifted flour; mix thoroughly. Use 2 level teaspoons of dough; form fruits. Chill for 30 minutes on an ungreased baking sheet. Heat oven to 300 degrees. Bake for 30 minutes.

To Form Apples: Roll into ball. Stick piece of stick cinnamon in stem end; clove in blossom end. For blush, dilute 1/8 tsp. red food coloring with 1 tsp. water; paint.

To Form Bananas: Foll into banana shape, taper ends. Flatten top to show planes; bend for curve. Paint markings with mixture of 3 drops red, 2 drops yellow, 1 drop blue food coloring and 1/2 tsp. water.
