Marzipan II

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A simple recipe to add that special touch. Marzipan can be rolled out and used to cover a cake, or to make decorations.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a large bowl, knead almond paste to soften. Mix in egg whites. Knead in confectioners' sugar 1 cup at a time. Add vanilla. Knead until marzipan feels like heavy pie dough.
  • Wrap tightly in plastic, and store in refrigerator in a sealed container. To use after storage, let stand at room temperature until soft, then knead briefly.

  • Notes:

    A few drops of food coloring may be kneaded into portions of marzipan until the desired shade is achieved.

    If marzipan stiffens up, just knead in a little water, egg white or corn syrup.
