Almond Paste Recipe
Prep time
Total time
*You can use almond meal/flour interchangeably with the blanched almonds here
Serves: 2lbs
  • *Blanched Almonds 1lb (454g)
  • Confectioner's Sugar 1lb (454g)
  • Pasteurized Egg Whites 3 (90g)
  • Almond Extract 2 teaspoons (10ml)
  1. Place the blanched almonds into the food processor and grind to medium meal
  2. Add half of the confectioners sugar and grind some more (I only did it in halves so that I wouldn't stress my machine)
  3. Add the rest of the confectioners sugar and you will soon have a very fine meal
  4. Add the egg whites and the almond extract and continue to process until you have a paste.
Store almond paste in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
