In the Middle East, marzipan (known as لوزینه lozina, lowzineh, a Persian word derived from lawz, “almond”) is flavored with orange-flower water and shaped into roses and other delicate flowers before they are baked. Marzipan is a confection consisting primarily of sugar or honey and almond meal (ground almonds), sometimes augmented with almond oil or extract. Marzipan can also be made from oatmeal, farina, or semolina. In Iran, marzipan fruit is a traditional Passover treat, replacing biscuits and cakes. Its perfect to eat together with coffee.
