 Ingredients List

  • · 1 cup flour
  • · 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • · 1 tablespoon water
  • · 1/2 cup butter
  • · 1 cup water
  • · 1 cup flour
  • · 3 eggs
  • · 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • · Almond-Butter Frosting (recipe below)
  • · toasted sliced almonds


Combine flour and butter with pastry blender; add 1 tablespoon water and blend to make pastry. Divide into 3 parts, pat each third into 3 oblong ovals on ungreased baking sheets. (Use 1 baking sheet, placing ovals widthwise) Refrigerate.
Combine 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup water in saucepan; bring to boiling. Remove from heat; add flour and stir until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until mixture is smooth. (Should resemble smooth mashed potatoes) Blend in extract and spread dough over unbaked pastry strips. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until top is crips and golden (50-55 minutes). Cool. (The top will settle and form a custard over pastry.) Before serving, spread with Almond Frosting. Sprinkle with nuts. Cool slightly.

To Serve: Cut into diagonal strips; serve warm or cold.
