Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure first cup of flour into a large bowl. Cut in butter. Sprinkle flour/butter mixture with 2 tablespoons of water and mix with a fork. Round mixture into a ball and divide in half. Pat dough with hands into two long strips, 12 X 3 inches. Strips should be about 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. Mix second amount of butter and water in a saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil. Add almond extract and remove from heat. Stir in flour immediately to keep it from lumping. When smooth and thick, add one egg at a time, beating until smooth. Divide in half and spread evenly over piece of pastry. Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes until top is crisp and nicely browned. Frost with a powdered sugar icing and sprinkle with slivered almonds or chopped nuts.
