No, not the same. Almond paste is made from blanched almonds and often has some sugar. It's used in marzipan and cooking. Almond butter is made from roasted almonds. It's a lovely alternative to peanut butter.
Agree with above. Are you having trouble finding almond paste for a recipe? I have tried and had no luck. As a substitute, I used marzipan, added crushed almonds, and reduced the sugar in the recipe, and it worked pretty well. Hope this is helpful!
