This dish turned out okay. Not great, as I had hoped. It seemed like something was missing. I added a few pinches of red pepper flakes to see if some heat helped. It did, but not enough. More salt?

I didn't have whole almonds, so I toasted sliced almonds instead. About 1/2 of the almonds got way too dark, and I was afraid to use them. I went ahead and made the almond paste...
