There are differences between, Almond Paste, Almond Filling and Mazipan. I get sick of running out of things when I am in the middle of something or going to the store and the store doesn't have the item. This is where I got the recipe for this. http://www.food.com/recipe/danish-almond-filling-54148

How To Make how to make almond filling

    Once you've blanched the almonds they will need to be dried. I place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and place them in an oven with just the heat of the pilot light. If you have an electric oven, heat oven on low and then turn off the oven, then place the almonds on the try in. Leave the door open. Leave them, but turn them over to dry all sides.
