Start by roasting the almonds if you haven't bought roasted almonds.
Preheat oven to 325F / 160 C. Spread almonds in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
Roast for 10-15 minutes, stirring once or twice to avoid scorching. Remove from the oven and let them cool a bit.
Transfer the almonds to the bowl of your food processor fitted with the S-blade.
Process almonds until a creamy butter forms.
Scrape the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula regularly.
The almonds will pass through different stages (see the pictures above in the post): crushed, powder, powdery paste, thicker paste, thick paste with a couple of dry bits, and finally creamy paste.
It can take up to 15 minutes. Keep processing until you get a perfect consistency. If your processor is becoming too hot, take a break and start again when it has cooled down.
