Almond Filling

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.

Almond Filling

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

And processed again until well blended.

Almond Filling – It’s Ready!

With the egg… you need to use this right away.

Baker’s Notes:

  • 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
