I have a can (15-16oz) of almond paste that has been sitting on my cupboard since Christmas and I want to use it up. Any good suggestions?

These flaky Danish pastries are a time-consuming project, but they're a perfect way to show people how much you love them! I like serving them at special brunches. The puff pastry dough and almond filling can be made ahead of time, and the pastries can be frozen before baking.

Finally, a real Danish dough for making Danish pastries just like the bakery. This can be used as a base for cheese or fruit Danishes, or elephant ears and bear claws. Try different preserves, pie fillings, and custards for filling.

Also called pine nut cookies. I make them and my family eats them so quickly I have to hide a few so I get some.

I made this one and it needs to have salt added.

A true Swiss Baumkuchen is almost impossible to make at home. It requires a rotating spit, and almost a gallon of batter, and loads of time. This is a smaller version, although it too takes time. The results taste a little like a Kit-Kat bar. The many layers will remind you of the famous Dobostorte.

This looks like so much fun to make. Read Michalh's review for an easier method.

These are good. I used a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan and the crust was perfect. It was a bit difficult to spread until I switched to a off set spatula. I used a ganache, Hard Chocolate Glaze for the icing and apricot jam inside.

Use this food coloring, raspberry jam, and this recipe to make rainbow cookies that are moist, mellow, and full of almond flavor.
