  1. Mix together flour and shifted icing sugar.

  2. Cut the butter in small pices and cut it into the flour/sugar mix until the texture is coarse.

  3. Add the egg yolk and water and quickly work the dough together.

  4. Place the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minute.

  5. Roll the marzipan into 40 small balls, set aside.

  6. Heat oven to 400°F.

  7. Roll out the cold dough on a workspace dusted with flour until the dough is very thin (0.1 inch). It should be as thin as possible without breaking.

  8. Use a cup or round cookie cutter with 2 inch diameter and cut out 40 round cookies. Gather and roll out cookie dough repeatedly as you go along to use up all dough.

  9. Place one marzipan roll in the middle of each round cookie.

  10. Gather the round cookie dough with three fingers and press around the marzipan ball; the form of the cookie should now look like Napoleon's hat (3 flaps sticking out).

  11. Place the 'hats' on baking sheets lined with parchment paper and bake for 8 min until sligtly golden.

  12. Let cool.

  13. Melt chocolate over a double boiler and dip the three flaps of the hat in the chocolate.
