      Delicious recipe! I've made this one a few times now, (since I haven't been able to get my great-grandmother's passed-down recipe off of my mom yet- this one seems nearly identical though). :) This turns out great every time for me- I made it in bulk last night for an event, and everyone loved it! I added a little extra almond icing to mine- not much, just enough to raise the sweetness level ever so slightly. Thanks for posting this recipe! Oh- one more thing I would add... I recommend using pure almond extract. It turns out much better.

      So easy to make, this recipe is an absolute treasure. The hardest part is hiding a piece for yourself when the news makes the rounds that a fresh batch is on its way to the table.

      Note the omission of cook temperature, which should be 350.

      Research shows this to be the godmother of all evolved forms of what we view collectively as "Danish" pastries, and with good reason: IT'S PERFECT.

      The "worst" review from a sweet-toothed guest upon first tasting this not-painfully-sweet treat: "...(chew, chew, chew) It could use more sugar... (chew, chew) nope... (chew) never mind. Can I have that other slice?)

      Upon recommendations, I'm going to try versions with some freshly made marzipan in the p?te a choux layer, and another with a smear of raspberry preserves before the glaze.

      No matter how it's dressed, though, this will be a holiday (and no doubt anytime) staple from my kitchen from hereon.
