Bergy, you saved me a fortune!!! I can make twice as much almond paste at half the cost of a four ounce tube! I stumbled upon this recipe accendently----a happy surprise!

Can't stop eating this easy, tasty almond paste, though I'm supposed to be saving it for a recipe (Lemon Blueberry Upside-Down Cake from "Bon Appetit", which I found from the Couldn't be Pareve blog). Delicious and authentic. Agree with a previous reviewer - if you want a really vibrant shot of almond in a recipe, add a touch of extract to the mix. I may do that next time, but for now, it's wonderful!
