I am pretty certain I have seen it described as Paté aux Amandes but as always I am sure it will be called different things in different shops..

Looks like pate d'amande is also used - so that's 3 possibilities.

Make your own, it's easy.
200g ground almonds
200g icing sugar
Melt icing sugar with a sprinkle of liquid , water, orange juice then mix with the almonds. Wrap in foil and leave for an hour.
You can also buy it in the baking section of the supermarket.

I agree with Polarengineer about making your own being easy.
I've only ever seen it sold as pâte d'amandes.
