  • 1st Part:

  • Cut 1/2 cup butter into 1 cup flour.
  • Sprinkle water over mixture and mix until it's moist enough to round into a ball.
  • Divide in half.
  • On ungreased baking sheet, pat each half into a strip that is roughly 12x3 inches, with strips about 3" apart.
  • 2nd Part:

  • Heat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup water to a rolling boil.
  • Turn heat to lowest setting and quickly stir in 1 t. almond extract and 1 cup flour.
  • Stir vigorously over low heat until mixture forms a ball, about 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Beat in eggs, all at once, until smooth and glossy.
  • Divide in half.
  • Spread evenly over strips.
  • Bake 60 minutes or until topping is crisp and brown.
  • Frost with Sugar Glaze (see below) and sprinkle with nuts.
  • Sugar Glaze:

  • Mix 3 cups powdered sugar, 4 T. butter, 1.5 t. vanilla, 1.5 t. almond extract, and 2-4 T. warm water until smooth and of spreading consistency.
  • If you are topping with walnuts instead of almonds, use less almond extract or none at all and just use vanilla extract.
  • Recipe can be made into individual puffs by patting dough into 3" circles, using a rounded tsp for each puff. Spread rounded tablespoon of batter (2nd part) over each circle, extending it just beyond the edge of the circle. Bake 30 minutes and frost.
