“This pastry tastes better than bake shop pastry! Takes time to prepare, but you will love the results!”

2 c. sifted flour
1 c. butter
2 T. water
1 c. water
1 tsp. almond flavoring
3 eggs

1 T. butter
2 T. milk
Confectioners’ sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix all ingredients and heat ~ consistency should be thin.

Preheat oven to 350°. Measure 1 cup flour into a bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons water. Mix with a fork. Round into a ball and divide in half. Pat dough into 2 long strips with hands. Make them about 12x3 inches. Place about 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Place 1/2 cup butter and 1 c. water in pan and bring to a rolling boil. Add almond flavoring and remove from heat. Immediately stir in remaining flour all at once, and stir until thick and smooth. Add 1 egg at a time, beating smooth before adding the rest. Divide mixture in half. Spread evenly in half over each pastry on baking sheet. Bake about 60 minutes until topping is crisp and brown. Frost with confectioners’ sugar icing and cover generously with chopped nuts. Slice on an angle.
