Hi Everyone! Hope everyone had a good weekend!

I spent the long weekend sleeping/napping, hanging out/brunching with CJ’s coworkers, having dinner with Tina and her parents who were in town, and eating cookies CJ made. GET THAT? I do probably 99% of the cooking, but the man bakes! (Actually the secret is that these were microwaved!)

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz can of almond paste
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 stick of butter
  • 4 eggs
  • almond extract (if you want to make it extra almond-y)

Beat together until smooth, and add red food coloring to 1/3 of the mixture, and green to 1/3 of it.

Microwave for 10 minutes on 50% until the mixture has set. Spread apricot and raspberry jam between the layers, and top with melted semi-sweet chocolate.
