The Hirshon Ultimate Persian Marzipan Toot – توت شیرینی

  • Author: The Generalissimo


Units Scale
  • 1 cup peeled almond flour
  • scant 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 13 drops edible Bulgarian rose essence or to taste (TFD change – original called for rosewater)
  • 12 drops edible violet essence or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly-ground cardamom (optional TFD addition to recipe)
  • 1/2 tsp. mahlab (optional TFD addition to recipe)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. orange blossom water
  • 1/2 Tbsp. finely-ground musk lifesavers (wildly optional TFD addition to recipe)
  • 2430 slivered pistachios
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  1. In a large bowl, stir together almond flour, ground musk lifesavers, salt and powdered sugar until fully mixed. Gradually add in floral essences and orange flower water + additional cold bottled water (about 1 ½ tsp. at a time), until mixture comes together in a dry dough. Continue to mix/knead for about two minutes, until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  2. Place granulated sugar in a plate. With your hands, roll a teaspoon of the almond mixture into a sphere, and make one end slightly pointy. Roll in granulated sugar to coat, then poke a slivered pistachio in the wide end of the toot to form a stem.
