Directions

1 Combine the flour, sugar and almonds. Add the egg, rosewater and cold butter in pieces. Chop together with a knife, then quickly knead into a smooth dough with clean hands. Chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
2 Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).
3 Roll out the dough between sheets of plastic, and cut out 6 cm (approximately 2 inch) round cookies. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for 12 minutes.
4 Chop the chocolate coarsely and melt in a double boiler, then remove from heat and let cool slightly.
5 Knead together the marzipan, egg whites, powdered sugar and chocolate and roll into small balls. 
6 Remove the cookies from the oven and allow to cool completely. 
7 Press a small marzipan ball onto each cookie, arrange the shaved almond pieces in a flower shape, then decorate with chopped orange peel and allow to dry.
8 Serve dusted with powdered sugar.
