Marzipan (almond paste)

Marzipan is a paste made of finely ground almonds mixed with sugar and some liquid to make it hold together. It is called "massepain" in French and "mandelmassa" in Swedish.


200 g finely ground almonds (or almond flour)
200 g powder sugar
0.4-0.5 dl water
optional: a few drops of almond extract

Mix almonds and sugar. Add water bit by bit while mixing until obtaining a solid shiny paste. Form a roll with it and wrap it in plastic film. Store it in the freezer until further use (in for example kanelbullar / Swedish cinnamon buns).
