MARZIPAN RECIPE:
 
( in Spanish; mazapán and in Italian; marzipane ) ...
 
OF THE ANCIENT MOORISH IN SICILIA y TOLEDO, SPAIN ...
 
EASTER FIGURINES OF MARZIPAN ...
 
 
 
 
I have finally encountered my Marzipan recipes that were given to me by a specialist, artisan craftman of this confectionary specialty for the ecclastic celebrations in the Mediterranean.
 
1 1/2 pounds or 750 grams of finely ground almonds
3/4 tsps. of almond extract
750 grams of super fine sugar ( 1 1/2 pounds of sugar ) : preferably vanilla sugar
3 egg whites
 
1) gently heat the almonds, almond extract and the sugar together until warm enough to knead a smooth paste
 
2) Now blend in the egg whites and form the shapes desired with your fingers and / or press into molds for the special holiday occasions, Easter, Christmas etcetra ...
 
3) Arrange the symbolic shapes on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven of 300 degrees farenheit or 150 centig. degrees until the Marzipan feels dry
 
4) the marzipan can be glazed by dipping into sugar syrup and briefly toasted under a hot broiler and thus, grilling golden the tops
 
5) they can also be iced or frosted as follows:
 
melt 1 cup or 250 grams or 8 oz. of super fine sugar in a pan and when cool, combine the white of an egg that has been stiffly beaten and combine thoroughly and glaze or pipe on the marzipan figurines.
 
Kind regards.
Margaux.
