Almond paste is made from ground almonds or almond meal and sugar in equal quantities, with a small amount of cooking oil, beaten eggs, heavy cream or corn syrup added to bind the two ingredients. It is similar to marzipan.
Almond paste is used as a filling in pastries of many different cultures. It is a chief ingredient of the American bear claw pastry. In Scandinavia almond paste is used extensively, in various pastries and cookies. In Sweden (where it is known as mandelmassa) it is used in biscuits, muffins and buns and as a filling in the traditional spring season pastry semla and is used in Easter and Christmas sweets. In Denmark (where it is known as marcipan or mandelmasse), almond paste is used in several pastries, for example as a filling in the Danish traditional pastry kringle.
Difference between Marzipan and Almond Paste: While they both are made of almonds, marzipan and almond paste are completely different creatures. Marzipan is smooth, sweet, and often dyed and molded into shapes. It’s also used to cover sweets much like fondant and is sometimes eaten as is. Almond paste, however, is coarser, less sweet, and used as an ingredient or filling for baked goods.
