When a recipe she wanted to try called for almond paste, Anne Keenan of Nevada City, California decided to make her own. "It saves the expense of the store-bought kind," she says, "and results in a lighter baked product."

"I went to buy the almond paste at the store. They didn't have it. I loved this recipe. It was so easy. I didn't have a food processor so I used my blender. It worked out just fine. This almond paste was added to my peach cobbler. It was very wonderful."

"I priced almond paste at the grocery store and read the ingredients….more sugar than almonds and very expensive. This recipe worked wonderfully and quickly. I used whole almonds, not blanched since the whiteness of the paste was not important for my baking project. (topping for a Colomba di Pasqua sweet bread) Thanks so much for this recipe. It is a real money saver for me."

"I've never used Almond Paste , just heard the name of it. I Love almonds and eat them every day. Can this be used as a spread on toast. Or is Almond Paste basically used as an ingredient in other recipes, such as desserts ?"
