    Almond Macaroon Mini Pies

    I admit, I was a bit nervous. I really wasn’t sure what to make to make with Marzipan. It’s not an ingredient that I use much. I know Marzipan is used a lot in the UK, but it’s never been a staple of mine.

    I Googled recipes. 

    I searched Pinterest.

    Nothing was talking to me. Nothing was screaming out “Bake Me! Eat Me!”

    But I bought my little can of Almond Paste and I stared at it. It sat neglected for a few days. I went back to the can and I said, “Can, what should I make with you?” And can you believe that there was a little message on the can that said, “2 recipes inside this label?”

    Inside the label was a recipe for Almond Paste Macaroons. I’d never had a Macaroon made from almond paste, but who I am to argue with Mrs. K’s Famous Macaroons? And, just like that, I knew what I was gonna make.

    I took those little macaroons and I stuffed them into a mini pie shell. Don’t they look great? And they taste great too!!
