Almond Bear Claws

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I definitely recommend making your own puff pastry for this one. I used a recipe I found on Google called "Quick Puff Pastry." After I ran out of my homemade dough, I used up some store bought pastry I had in the freezer and those claws didn't come out nearly as beautiful or delicious. The other thing I would change next time is adding more egg and sugar to the filling. I found it too think and not quite sweet enough. But still, OH SO GOOD!

My husband is Czech and I spent a year living in Prague with him. I've never seen a Czech Pastry that was so flat. Everything that his very traditional mother made was puffy and more like a little bun. I actually made Kolácky with a quick puff pastry dough before tryin this recipe, and my husband liked them much more and thought they were much more authentic. This dough is too simple, but it is fast. Still, I'd recommend buying frozen puff pastry and filling it with these fillings if you needed to make these in a pinch. They don't taste bad, they're just not traditionally "Czech".
