Whipping up a batch of almond paste is a doddle with Celia Plender's simple recipe

Method

1. Sift the ground almond and icing sugar into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and drop in the egg. Using a wooden spoon or spatula, stir until the egg is incorporated into the almond mix.

2. Sprinkle a little icing sugar on to a clean work surface, turn the mixture out and then knead gently until it comes together in a smooth-ish dough. If the dough is sticky, add a bit more icing sugar.

3. Store in the fridge in an air-tight container or freeze until needed.

Makes great marzipan with a lovely smooth texture.
However, next time I will be adding almond extract because it didn't have enough almond flavour for me.
Best marzipan recipe I've tried out so far!
