marzipan candy from paris

I've been slowly making my way through our Paris treats, and I had to share these beauties with you that I got from A la Mère de Famille in Paris. Called "calissons" (or marzipan candy), these little confections are seriously in the "too pretty to eat" category. I've been staring at them for weeks and finally took a bite. They're dense, chewy, and sweet with a nice almond flavor—similar to other marizipan candies I've had before but not overly sweet. I also think they make really pretty inspiration for sugar cookies painted in pretty pearlescent tops...
