KP almond paste?
A log time ago, it seems almond crescents were available for Pesach. I believe they were made with almond paste. Last year I looked all over NYC/NJ for them to no avail. Anyone know who has them or even a recipe?
You can make your own almond paste. This is one possible version:
1.5 c. blanched almonds
1.5 c. confectioners’ sugar
1 egg white
1.5 tsp. almond extract
.25 tsp. salt
Place almonds in a food processor; cover and process until smooth. Add the confectioners’ sugar, egg white, extract and salt; cover and process until smooth.
Makes 1.5 c.
You can use "Passover confectioners' sugar" and just skip the almond extract, unless you have a Pesach version. I might also consider substituting a little KFP brandy, but it's not necessary.
This year I found delicious KP Almond Crescents, with the tips dipped in chocolate. They are made by Bite Wise in Brooklyn. I bought them in Harolds II in Paramus, NJ. Not cheap, but delicious. There are 9 crescents and I'm "rationing them" so that they last. Ingredients are simple, and they could probably be made at home, but I didn't have a recipe. FYI - they are made of Almonds, Sugar, Eggs, Macaroon Paste (which I take to be almond paste?), Chocolate, Baking Powder, and Vanilla Extract. I hope that I find these every year!
