This recipe is for those of you who wish to make your own almond paste. I prefer making my own. When I feel lazy, I purchase it in specialty stores. Rose water can be substituted for the almond extract, and can be purchased in Middle Eastern stores, or maybe even health food stores.

Almond Paste


  • 1 pound blanched almonds
  • 1 (16 ounce) package confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


1 Grind almonds in a blender. Thoroughly mix in confectioners sugar. Beat egg whites slightly, then stir into the almond mixture. Add almond extract, using your hands to blend the heavy mixture.
