Special Recipes for the Holidays: Non-Almond Marzipan!

December 10, 2023 | Recipes

Marzipan is a traditional winter treat in many parts of Europe. Interestingly, the Amana Marzipan recipes do not include almonds or almond paste! It would have been difficult and expensive to procure almonds or almond paste in communal Amana, so the Amana cooks improvised and came up with a delicious variation.

Be sure to try out both brown and white versions to see which you prefer. Use old-fashioned cookie cutters with deep, sharp edges to cut them into shapes.
