I needed almond paste to make galette des rois in the US which required half cup of almond paste. Went to 2 stores. First didn't have it. 2nd one cost an arm and a leg. This recipe is delicious and easy. I've returned to it time and again. Finally felt the need to give it a 5-star review cause it deserves one.

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 ?
