Marzipan is that food where when you find it in a croissant you get all happy. Well I do anyway. I have never made it and we needed some so I made it. Yes I made it.
Marzipan is actually super easy to make. It has 3 ingredients and takes probably 5 minutes. This is a really short blog post because I already posted today.
Based on the recipe in Scandinavian Baking.
250g ground almonds
50g icing sugar
30 ml water
Mix the ground almonds with the icing sugar. Add the water and mix again. Nead on a surface covered with icing sugar until it forms a smooth dough. This will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
