Title: Nut pastes/ marizpan almond paste
Yield: 4 Servings
1 1/2 c Blanched ( skinless ) whole
1 1/2 c Powdered sugar, sifted
1 Egg white
1 ts Almond extract
In the work bowl of your food processor grind almonds until very
fine. Do this in small batches if necessary. In a large bowl, using a
fork, beat the egg white until it loosens up. Then add the almond
extract, almonds and sugar. Work into a stiff paste, using your hands
if it is easier for you. This almond paste can be used as a base for
cookies, or to flavor butter creams. It can be combined with butter
and used as a filling for cookies or cakes. It can be rolled into
small balls, or dipped into chocolate and eaten as candy. Place in an
air tight container and refrigerate until ready to use.
