Preparation method

  • Break the marzipan into chunks and blend with a dash of lemon brandy until smooth. Make sure that the marzipan is smooth enough to flow through a squeeze bottle. Do this by feel; individual marzipans may differ, and the amount of brandy given is only an indication.
  • Put the marzipan in a piping bag with a small, smooth nozzle.
  • Pit the cherries with a cherry pitter, but leave the stems on.
  • Inject each cherry full of the liquefied marzipan, and close by pushing in an almond.

Serving suggestions

  • As a friandise.
  • As part of a desert with almonds and crème frâiche ice cream. 
  • As part of a desert with white chocolate mousse and Grand Marnier parfait.
