Marzipan Morning

Yesterday a friend from co-op had us over to play and learn how to make and decorate marzipan. It's so easy to do and a great recipe to whip up with the kids.

2 cups finely ground almonds
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp almond essence
Grind the almonds and sugar together. Add essence. Add only enough egg to make stiff paste. Knead until smooth. Make icing adding color. Dust board with confectioners sugar and create what the imagination wills.

Note of Caution: Watch out for rabbits on the loose because pieces of our garden keep disappearing!
