Almond paste is actually a confection made from blanched almonds, sugar, and liquid sugar as corn syrup. It is similar to marzipan except it is less granular and contains less sugar. Use almond paste in marzipan, cookies, cakes, candies and pastries. Almond paste can also be purchased ready-made from the grocery store. If you make your own, you are making a PASTE, not almond flour. Almond paste variations: Orange Almond, Rose Almond and Pistachio-Almond Paste
