About This Recipe
“Making almond paste is so simple and to me it tastes fresher than any you can buy”
“I’m so happy to have this recipe and thankyou for sharing it!”
“Bergy, you saved me a fortune!!! I can make twice as much almond paste at half the cost ofa four ounce tube!I stumbled upon this recipe accendently—-a happy surprise!”
“Can’t stop eating this easy, tasty almond paste, though I’m supposed to be saving it for a recipe (Lemon Blueberry Upside-Down Cake from “Bon Appetit”, which I found from the Couldn’t be Pareve blog).Delicious and authentic.Agree with a previous reviewer – if you want a really vibrant shot of almond in a recipe, add a touch of extract to the mix.I may do that next time, but for now, it’s wonderful!”
“Wonderful and simple!It saved me $10.00 for a measly 7 oz. tube of almond paste.I would add a teaspoon or two of almond extract though for a more robust flavor.”
“I’ve though that prepare almond paste would be so easy.
I blanched the almonds myself the day before. I grinded them with the food processor for a while, added the sugar, processed again, added the egg white and processed shortly until all came together.
I did not add aromas (almond extract, orange flavor, vanilla, or others) nor food coloring, but next time I know that this would be done very fast and the result is great.
I shaped roses simply for fun and I can say that it was never so easy to shape them like with this paste. The paste was less fat that the commercial one.
I notices that the petals dried out a little bit after 1 hour. This is a big advantage if you use this paste for modeling.
I don’t know if this depends on the almonds, but I suppose this, if this is not desired I suggest adding some (1 teaspoon) of almond oil.
Thanks a lot; I will use this recipe again for sure.”
“I could believe how simple this was to make – I will never buy canned again!used my food processor and added a teaspoon of pure almond extract and it tastes great.Now to make my Italian wedding cookies (aka Venetians or Rainbow cookies).
