Used in a variety of confections, Almond Paste is made of blanched ground almonds, sugar and glycerin or another liquid. Almond extract is sometimes added to intensify the flavor.
It should be firm but pliable before use in a recipe. If it becomes hard, it can be softened by heating for 2 or 3 seconds in a microwave oven.
Once opened, it should be wrapped tightly and refrigerated. This paste is available in most supermarkets in 6- to 8-ounce cans or packages, but if you can't find it or just want to make your own here is a recipe for it.
