  • 1 pound Almond Paste
  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Egg Whites, Lightly Beaten
  • 1/2 tsp Almond Extract Optional


  • Gather the ingredients.
  • Coarsely chop the almond paste into quarter-sized chunks and place in the bowl of a large stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • Add powdered sugar to the bowl and mix on low speed until the mixture has a fine, sandy texture. If you don't have a stand mixer, feel free to use a food processor.
  • Pulse the almond paste and powdered sugar until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  • With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the egg whites (and almond extract, if using) until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball. (If you are using a food processor, look for the same appearance.) You may not need to add all of the egg whites.
  • Dust a countertop or cutting board with powdered sugar and knead the marzipan until it develops a smooth, pliable texture. It should have no lumps or dry patches.
  • Use the marzipan immediately or store it for later use.
  • Enjoy it on your favorite cake or as a tasty, nutty snack.
