hey, i have found a recipe for rainbow cookies (one of my favorite types of cookies) but it calls for almond paste which i cannot have. does anyone know any substitutions that do not contain nuts?

This is a tough one, but maybe sesame paste (tahini) would work. You could also add some almond extract (doesn't really contain almonds, by the way) to make it almond flavored.
If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

I used to make them all the time and stopped since we learned ds was tna. I havent come up with an alternative. i think tahini will change the taste too much, no?
