"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Almond paste should be purchased at a bakery. You can use the one that is sold in the super markets but it needs to be put in the microwave to soften up and tends to make the dough too soft requiring it to be cooked in a muffin pan.
