Low-Fat Almond Marzipan (Kopie)

*****
Serve in squares, or make your marzipan more festive by adding food coloring and molding into whatever shapes you (and your family) please!

Ingredients
•2 cups white sugar
•2/3 cup water
•1/8 tsp cream of tartar
•4 cups finely ground almonds
•2 egg whites
•1/2 cup or less powdered sugar

Instructions
Prepare by filling a basin or your sink with cold water, and laying out a sheet of wax paper, dusting lightly with powdered sugar. Combine white sugar and water in large saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring constantly until sugar is completely dissolved. Add cream of tartar and cover. Bring to a boil, and simmer 3 minutes. Uncover and continue boiling until candy thermometer reaches 240 degrees Fahrenheit, and remove from heat. Holding the pan in prepared cold water (without letting water overflow into the pan itself) stir mixture until it begins to thicken. Remove from water, place over low heat, and stir in almonds and egg whites, about 3 minutes, until mixture is thick. Displace onto wax paper, turning with a stirring implement until cool enough to work with. Dust hands with powdered sugar and need marzipan until smooth. Press into pan or mold, or shape by hand, and allow to cool completely.
