Directions

  1. In a large bowl, knead almond paste to soften. Mix in egg whites. Knead in confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time. Add vanilla. Knead until marzipan feels like heavy pie dough.
  2. Wrap tightly in plastic, and store in refrigerator in a sealed container. To use after storage, let stand at room temperature until soft, then knead briefly.

Footnotes

  • Notes
  • A few drops of food coloring may be kneaded into portions of marzipan until the desired shade is achieved.
  • If marzipan stiffens up, just knead in a little water, egg white or corn syrup.

I was going to try this recipe, but almond paste is too soft, and once mixed with egg whites, it's just a mess. Most of the other recipes I've found call for finely ground blanched almonds--pro...

I'm not sure what the others did or didn't do when making this recipe. It turned out exactly like it was suppose to for me, and I followed the recipe to a tee. The only thing I did was convert...
