I've made this recipe for years and co-workers request it for pot lucks. It's actually in an old Betty Crocker cookbook under "Danish Puff". My recipe calls for pecans instead of almonds, which I love. The recipe also calls for adding the 3 eggs all at once and mixing until the dough is smooth and glossy--like cream puff pastry. I changed the frosting a bit since it's the only sweetness. I use 2 to 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons butter, 2-3 tablespoons of half and half, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 teaspoon almond extract. I bake my puff at 350 for 50-55 minutes. The puff should expand and collapse after cooling. If the puff does not puff up a little, it tends to take on a hard texture, which may have happened to a couple of reviewers who did not like the texture. The texture should be soft and slightly custardly in the middle of the puff. It's absolutly devine!
