Almond Paste Roses
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. The paste is available by Odense (made in Denmark with California almonds!), or around Christmas time as Marzipan. These roses make the perfect edible garnish for cheese platters or desserts.
1 tube Almond Paste or Marzipan
Pinch off about 5-7 pieces of the paste for each rose you wish to make, using about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon for each piece. Shape each piece into a round ball and place between waxed paper pieces. Using a rolling pin, roll out to make thin workable flat rounds. Roll one up fairly tight to be the center of your rose, and then simply pinch on the remaining flattened discs to create a rose. It is fun, creative, and tasty too. If desired, melt some dark chocolate and dip the tips of the roses into chocolate and place on waxed paper to harden.
