How to Make Almond Paste


  • cups finely ground almonds
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • ½ teaspoon pure almond extract


Put all the ingredients in a food processor with 2 tablespoons water and process until a paste forms. Remove from the food processor, wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate until ready to use. Extra almond paste, tightly wrapped, keeps well in the freezer.
