8 ounces almond paste
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
3 drops food coloring, your choice of color


1. Break almond paste into small pieces over a medium bowl.
Add 1 cup of powdered sugar and work in
with your hands until incorporated.
It will be crumbly.
Add another 3/4 cup of sugar and work it in really well.
Pour in corn syrup and work in until evenly blended.
Spread remaining sugar out on a clean work surface and knead dough until smooth and uniform; 3 to 5 minutes.
If dough seems too sticky knead in more sugar.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate
about an hour.
It should have the consistency of modeling dough.

2. Break off small pieces of marzipan to color, kneading in color thoroughly until you arrive at the desired color.
Then blend colored pieces into larger portions of dough. Dust a work surface and rolling pin with powdered sugar and roll dough out to 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut into desired shapes using small cookie cutters
to make candies.

Yield: 1 pound

This can be a great cover for a cake or cut out shapes to decorate cakes, cookies or eat alone. You will need a bit of icing to glue the marzipan to a cookie or cake and it will make a great treat.
