Marzipan Treats


With Easter days away these are a fabulous rich treat that will tickle the taste buds of young and not so young alike!!!

You will usually see them in speciality stores around Easter and Christmas, shape of fruits and holiday related shapes.

You will need:

1 LB blanched almonds, very finely ground (this is most important)
1 LB confectioners sugar
2 egg whites
3 tsp. almond extract
rose water

In a bowl mix the ground almonds and sifted confectioners' sugar. Add egg whites and almond extract. Sprinkle enough rose water over the mixture to make a thick paste.

Shapes are only limited by your imagination
Lightly dust a working area of your counter with confectioners' sugar. Place the almond mixture on the prepared counter and knead until the paste is no longer sticky, but holds together. It may be neessary to add more egg white. Shape into small balls or into other shapes and decorate as desired. Store in fridge.

  10. Oooh! I LOVE marzipan. Marzipan is really popular here in Spain especially around Christmas time. Someone told me marzipan was discovered/created in Spain (in Toledo). I'm not sure, but love it none the less.
