This was just okay to me. It was very rich and buttery, but didn't have much flavor, besides an extremely strong almond extract flavor. I even cut the amount of extract in half for both the puff and the frosting. The pastry looked just gorgeous, even though it fell a bit. I frosted it when the puff was cool, and sprinkled it with toasted sliced almonds. However, I was really unimpressed with the taste and texture of this. The puff sank, and created a very strange, flavorless custard-like center, which was somewhat drippy and unappealing. The bottom layer was really yummy to me, like a savory shortbread. It really didn't have a lot of flavor though, but the texture was magnificent. Altogether, this recipe is definitely not inedible, but I wouldn't make it again.
