These little cookies have been brought up multiple times during our nomination process at the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll, so I was excited to finally make them, plus I love almond paste when used in baking. Let's clarify this. I love to eat things made with almond paste. This is the first time I have made something with almond paste.
I decided to make this already easy recipe easier by not making my own almond paste. As instructed in the recipe, I searched high and low for a can of paste instead of a tube, but had to settle for a tube. To make up for this, I wound up using a wee bit less sugar than the recipe called for.
I think they turned out well. Nice and chewy but a bit crispy on the edges and outside in general. I believe they could have been a bit crispier; maybe this was due to the paste coming from a tube or maybe because they turned out a bit larger than I think they should have been. Regardless, I am looking forward to them hardening up over the next couple of days… and eating more of them.
