Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut 1/2 cup butter into 1 cup flour with a knife or pastry blender in a bowl until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon butter extract. Add the water a tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until the flour mixture is moistened. Press mixture onto the bottom of a 10x13-inch baking sheet.
  3. Bring 1 cup water, 1/2 cup butter, and 1/2 teaspoon butter extract to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, then beat in 1 cup flour. Beat in eggs one at a time until blended. Stir in 1 teaspoon almond extract, and pour over crust.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 55 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1/4 teaspoon butter extract, and 1 tablespoon milk in a bowl until smooth. Spread mixture over the hot pastry.

I've made this many times in the past with sliced almonds decorating the icing. It's been called almond puff pastry too. The only difference with this recipe is the addition of butter flavored extract which sounds very nice. Love the recipe and it's always been a hit at get-togethers.

Loved this. Took it to church for Easter sunrise services. Looked for butter extract. Couldnt find it so i used almond, added some Butter Buds to the dough and topped with almonds. Stellar recipe. The only sweetness comes fro bthe icing so it isnt sicky sweet

Been a favorite in my house for many, many years. I don't use the butter flavor but it might be good. Like other reviewer I also top with toasted sliced almonds. People are always impressed with this pastry.
