Almond Paste Cookies

In a book called Creative Kitchen about food gifts, there was a recipe for Ice-Cream Cone Cookies. It included bubble gum-flavored oil (WHAT??). What intrigued me was that the main ingredient was almond paste. Being a good German girl, I love almond paste (marzipan), so decided to adjust the recipe a bit and never mind the bubble gum oil.
