Marzipan

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sliced almonds, 200g
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, 150g
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 3 tsp water
  • 1 tsp rose water, or 1 tsp more water

Preparations

    step 1

    Put almonds in a food processor and mix until finely ground.

    step 2

    Add powdered sugar and almond extract. Mix until combined.

    step 3

    Then add water, one teaspoon at a time, until the mixture comes together and forms a crumbly dough. Add rose water if desired and mix until incorporated.

    step 4

    Turn marzipan out onto a surface, sprinkled with a bit of powdered sugar, and use your hands to press crumbs into a log. Add water by the teaspoon if the mixture is too dry.

    step 5

    Wrap in plastic wrap and store in a dark and cool place until needed.
