Swedish "Bisvki"

This is a DELICIOUS recipe for Swedish “Biskvi”. “Biskvier” is something you can find in ANY bake/coffee shop in sweden, and it has always been my personal favorite pastry!
It is an almond cookie with a whipped topping coated in chocolate, and it’s pretty much genius!

I’m sorry if my english makes this recipe sound a bit strange.


  • Cookie:
  • 10 oz marzipan
  • 1 egg white
  • Filling:
  • 3 ½ oz unsalted butter (Room temperature)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • A little bit of vanilla extract (Or 2 tsp of vanilla sugar)
  • 3 tsp cocoa powdered (dutch processed)
  • Coating:
  • 4,2 oz bitter sweet or semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 tbs unsalted butter (Room temperature)


  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    2. Grate the marzipan and mix with the eggwhite to a flexible mixture.
    3. Divide into lumps on a cookie sheet and flatten them to 2 inch cookies. (And use some flour or powdered sugar on your hand so it doesn’t get too sticky)
    4. Bake for 10 minutes.
    5. Carefully remove the cookies and let cool…
    6. Mix butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and cocoa powder to an even batter. Put it carefully on the bottom part of the cookies and let the cool in the fridge for at least an hour.
    9. Melt chocolate in the microwave or in a double bolier.
    10. Mix in the butter.
    11. Dip the cookies in the chocolate and let the filling get coated. Don’t put chocolate under the cookie though.
    12. Keep the cookies cold.

My Moms swedish. I can't wait to make this for her. Nothing was written and she and her family made everything from scratch. Saddly she can't remember any recipes. She does remember wonderful tastes and smells. Thanks so much. Karen


Mmmmm Yummy I love these and make them for christmas every year - it's very much like macaroons but even better with the chocolate coating


Oh! I forgot to add that we use almondpaste instead of marzipan in sweden to this recipe - but you can go either way. Marzipan is sweeter...


These have long been a favorite of mine, since I first tried them while visiting family in Sweden 15 years ago. Until now, I hadn't found a recipe to make them for my kids here at home. Very excited to get going on these! Tack så mycket!


Sooo excited to have found this! I moved to the states from sweden 3 years ago and these remind me so much of home! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!
