Original recipe yields 1 pound



  1. Place the blanched almonds in the container of a food processor or blender. Process until finely ground, but do not make almond butter. Transfer the almonds to a medium bowl, and mix with egg whites, confectioners' sugar, and almond extract. Knead until the dough is smooth and uniform. If you have a stand mixer, use the dough hook attachment to mix. Divide into pieces and color as desired to make fruits, or whatever you desire.

This marzipan had an okay taste. In my opinion, I would leave out the added almond extract. It gives it far too much of an almond taste ! It was hard to make it the right texture without adding too much powdered sugar, so I think I would leave out one egg white next time ! The recipe wasn't very clear on how to store the marzipan after coloring. I shaped mine into fruits, and colored them, but it never really got hard on the outside like the ones you buy in candy stores. I am still searching for the perfect recipe.



for my high school German class, we are having a Valentine's party and i am "trying" this recipe... unfortunatly, since you specified that one was not to creat an "almond butter" i was hesitant with my grinding of the almonds and i believe that has contributed to the gooey mess i have. i have just check other marzipan recipes and they talk about almond paste which i assume is what almond butter meant. additionally, i am trying to add tiny amounts of powdered sugar and flour to add some structure to my marzipan... but to no avail. ALL FUTURE USERS OF THIS RECIPE BEWARE!



it was wonderful. i'm living in germany and i made this. al my friends said "just like grandma used to make!"
