How to prepare:
Grind the almonds (without the brown peel) several times with an almond or mincing machine. Sift the icing sugar. Grind the sugar too, although not necessary, but it'll take along the last pieces of grounded almonds from the machine.
Knead almonds, sugar and rosewater to a smooth, non sticking, ball.
Place marzipan for at least 1 day in the fridge wrapped in plastic foil or in an airtight box.
You can mold marzipan into nice shapes:
Potatoes: roll balls, coat with some cocoa and prick with a cocktail stick some "eyes".
White mice: make pearshaped models, piece of rope for a tail, chocolate sprinkles are eyes, muesli for ears (coat with cocoa for brown mice).
Or fill dates with marzipan.
When made with normal sugar you'll get almond paste.
