Danish Puff

I received this recipe from a friend of mine when I worked at Walker Manufacturing many years ago.  It is a favorite to serve when you want something sweet yet not too heavy.  It is flaky and delicious!

1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
2 TBS water

1/2 cup butter
1 cup water
2 tsp almond extract
1 cup flour
3 eggs

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 TBS butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1-2 TBS warm water
Sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Crust:  Mix together the butter, flour and water and pat into two long strips 12x4 (or 12x3) on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Set aside.

Filling:  Boil together the butter and water.  Take off heat and add the almond extract and flour.   Stir together quickly and then add the eggs, one at a time.  Stir well.  Pat half of the mixture onto each crust, be sure to cover all the crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.  Let cool completely before frosting.

When cooled, mixed together the powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and water til smooth.  Frost each Danish Puff and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
