Preparation Time: 1 hr 10 min

Ingredients
  • 2/3 cup unsalted butter; room temp
  • 1/2 cup almond paste; room temp
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup (heaping) confectioners' sugar for rolling pretzels
  • 1/2 pound semisweet chocolate
  • Melted Almond Paste (ingredients follow, recipe below)
  • 8 ounces almonds; blanched
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter; soft
  • 1 cup (heaping) confectioner's sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
     
  2. Line baking pans with parchment or waxed paper.

  1. Using the steel blade of the food processor, grind almonds to a fine powder.
     
  2. Add butter in chunks and process to blend.
