Scandinavian Style Almond Paste
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
5 ingredients
2 servings
This is a wonderful almond paste to use in recipes like scones, pizzelles, almond cookies, and other pastries but is optimal for those itty bitty Danish almond cakes. I got this from a cooking magazine a few years ago. My version calls for 2 tbsp butter but you might want to up it to 3 if you find that it's not a good consistency or almond-to-butter ratio. If you don't have almond extract at hand (because you're like me and are too poor and/or lazy to buy a bottle), vanilla extract will work too. Also you need a food processor for this!
