  • 1 cups - flour
  • 1/2 cups - butter
  • 2 tablespoons - water
  • Puff
  • 1/2 cups - butter
  • 1 cups - water
  • 1 teaspoons - almond extract
  • 1 cups - flour
  • 3 - eggs
  • Confectioners' Sugar Glaze
  • 1/2 cups - confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons - soft butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons - vanilla
  • 1 tablespoons - to 2 Tbsp. water
  • - food coloring, optional
  • - chopped nuts, for topping
  • Directions:

    For Pastry:
    Cut butter into flour. Sprinkle with water and mix with fork. Pat thinly on ungreased baking sheet or pizza pan.

    For Puff:
    Mix second amount of butter and water; bring to a boil, then remove from heat. Add flavoring extract.

    Beat in flour, stirring quickly to prevent lumps. When smooth, add one egg at a time, beating well after each until smooth. Spread evenly over pastry.

    Bake about 60 minutes at 350 degrees F or until topping is nicely browned (puff has a tendency to shrink while cooling, leaving a custard-like portion in the center).

    Combine confectioners' sugar, butter, vanilla, water and food coloring (if desired), and spread on top. Sprinkle with nuts.

    Cut to serve.
