To go with the Sour Cherry Filling
I made the other day I searched for a recipe for an almond filling.
I found one in Baking With Julia
. I was inspired by this recipe. A pretty awesome book.
For this recipe I used:
1 Cup of sliced Almonds
1/2 Cup of Icing Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Unsalted Butter - room temperature
1/2 Teaspoon of Almond Extract
1 Large Egg - beaten
|Almond Filling - The Ingredients|
In my food processor
I added the almonds, butter, and icing sugar.
|Almond Filling - Almonds, Icing Sugar, and Butter|
I processed the almonds as much as I could without turning it into almond butter.
|Almond Filling - Processed as Finely as you can|
I added the egg and almond extract
|Almond Filling - Adding the Extract and Egg|
And processed again until well blended.
|Almond Filling - It's Ready!|
With the egg... you need to use this right away.
- this is a small batch recipe if you have a small insert bowl for your food processor, or a mini food processor, use it
- this pretty close to marzipan, but in my opinion tastes better
- use immediately
