Almond extract recipes

Almond extract is distilled from the essential oil of bitter almonds, a variety that contains poisonous prussic acid and can only be consumed in very limited quantities. It is used to boost the almond flavour of cakes and desserts, often in conjunction with whole or ground sweet almonds.
