Almond Paste

Try this quick and easy method for making almond paste. Almond paste is useful in making cakes, cookies and fillings. Try it for an extra sweet, nutty flavor in your next recipe.

Ingredients
  • 1 pound blanched almonds
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups sugar
Instructions
  1. Force blanched almonds through fine blade of food chopper or whirl in electric blender. Add lemon juice.
     
  2. Cook water and sugar until candy thermometer registers 240 degrees F, or until a small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms a soft ball. Add to ground almonds. Mix well.
     
  3. When cool enough to handle, knead until smooth. Cool.
     
  4. Pack in jar; cover and store in refrigerator for at least 1 week to ripen. Makes about 2 pounds. 
Notes

If almond paste is too stiff to handle after storage, place in top part of double boiler and heat over hot, not boiling water until sufficiently soft to handle. Use in cookies, coffee cakes or in other pastries and desserts.

Is this the almond paste (marzipan) used with Royal Icing in wedding cakes?
