This recipe was easy and absolutely delicious! It is exactly the almond filling that we have been enjoying in our favorite bakery's almond croissants. Instead of grinding 1 cup of whole almonds, we used a generous 1/2 cup of Bob's Red Mill almond meal. Wonderful!!

I've wanted to make almond paste for a while and this was so good, easy and cheap (compared to the canned stuff)... will be making this again. Thank you for sharing!
