DIRECTIONS

  • Pastry:
  • Cut butter into flour.
  • Add water and mix with fork.
  • Shape into a ball and divide in half.
  • Pat into two 12" X 3" strips on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • FILLING:
  • Bring water and butter to boil and remove from heat. Then IMMEDIATELY, (this is important), add flour and beat until smooth, then eggs, one at a time, beating.
  • Add flavoring.
  • Add almonds, if using.
  • Spoon half of filling on each strip of pastry and spread just to the edges. It will be very thick. Bake 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Frost. (There is no sugar in the pastry itself, so the sweetness comes from whatever frosting you choose to use.).
