I like almond pasticiotti. I think it is less sweet than the custard pasticiotti, and it also seems more filling to me.
I want to try and make some at home. I have a recipe for it which just calls for "almond paste" for the filling. I've looked at the international store, but did not find it. Grocery stores sell almond spreads, but I know that's not the same thing and won't come out right.
Where can I find almond paste for almond pasticiotti? Is it possible to make the paste at home or are there any other nut or fruit substitutes?
