The almonds, sugar and almond extract are to be mixed in a food processor "until the ingredients come together". I have a blender but not a food processor. Do you think I could make the filling in a blender?

You'll have to scrape the canister down a few times, but my blender is great at chores like that.

I agree with using the blender. Low speed, go slow, scrape often, and you can have good control. Sounds relish!

It's straight from a book, so not sure I can post here. It's from Fika: The Art of the Swedish Coffee Break. I read about it in The Tipsy Baker's blog. The recipe can be found online if you google "apelsinsnittar". It's a finicky recipe and took me away from all my cares and concerns this Sunday afternoon. Please post if you try it.
