Personal Notes:
In memory of 104 year-old Aunt Mary (my great, great Aunt) - our family baker - would bake all kinds of Italian cookies and cakes for the holidays, baptismals, and weddings. This Almond Paste recipe was always a favorite. She passed away in October 2006 at 104 years old. Thank you for letting us honor her memory by passing on her special recipe.
