We made a nice big batch of homemade almond paste a few weeks ago. It tastes delicious and it’s the most fragrant almond paste I’ve ever come across. Only three ingredients, and multiple times less expensive than imported tubes of the stuff you’d find at the grocery store. So obviously we began hoarding recipes using almond paste immediately. This is the result. Enjoy!
