Almond Paste Cookies

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Because I bake for our local farmers market, I'm looking for a recipe for those delicious large horseshoe shaped almond paste cookies, rolled in slivered almonds. I've tried some combinations of ingredients, but can't seem to come up with one that retains it's crackling plumpness after baking. Any help will be appreciated. contessacannoli

I think you are just looking for a macaroon paste recipe. Maybe cut back on the egg whites a little. A lot has to do with how the cookies are stored, keep in mind that cookies based on almond past will suck up moisture.
