Almond Paste



Almond Paste

Almond paste is widely used in baking and confectionery. It's made from a simple blend of ground almonds, sugar, and sometimes a small amount of liquid, such as water or egg whites. 

This mixture creates a dense, smooth, and slightly sweet paste with a distinctly nutty flavour.

It's common to use almond paste for croissants as a sweet filling, and it’s also an essential component in various traditional European treats, such as marzipan, frangipane, and macarons.

Almond paste is useful for those seeking gluten-free alternatives in baking. Its naturally gluten-free composition allows for the creation of delicious sweet treats for those with particular dietary needs.
