I just googled "phyllo dough almond paste recipes" and there are a lot of them out there. Sorry, something is preventing me from sharing links.

How much almond paste? My mother gave me a cookbook, that has a great universal cookie recipe. Makes a master batch of dough, which you quarter. To each quarter, you choose from 20 different recipes, each only requiring another 2 or 3 ingredients. Fabulous recipe. Takes 4 tubes of almond paste, and BUTTER. Great for holidays!

A delicious frangipane tart using phyllo as the crust would be amazing.

As for the phyllo, you could make cookies with the almond paste, as well. Grind some almonds, for texture. Add an egg, some white sugar, a little vanilla, pinch of salt, and make "raviolis". Lay out some phyllo, cut into 3" squares. Place some of the almond mixture in each square, and top[ with another sheet of phyllo. Be sure to moisten the edges of the bottom layer, before putting on the top. Bake "raviolis" , dust with powdered sugar, and dip in honey, if you want the Greek experience.

frangipane tart would be good, too.! Make it rustic, easy! Grease a pie pan, lay in 1/2 of the phyllo, add fruit filling, and top with the rest of the phyllo. Fold all corners in, not being dainty. Leave points sticking up. Egg wash all, and a nice pointed, crispy, fluffy crust!
