Marzipan orange cookies – paleo & vegan

Christmas is coming and I am seriously in baking mood for the first time for the last couple of years. Favorites so far are those marzipan orange cookies or crescents.

High protein and lower carb and fat -not what you normally expect from Christmas cookies… but those are so delicious – probably cause I am a huge marzipan lover.
