  • 200 ml almond meal (about 2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 to 5 tsp milk


  • In a food processor, mix together almond meal, sugar and powdered sugar.
  • Add 3 tsp of milk. Mix.
  • If the texture is still too dry, add another teaspoon of milk (and so on). NOTE:  I have never used more than 5 tsp of milk.
  • Form a roll of the almond paste.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap.
  • Store in refrigerator (or freezer for longer time).
