Crust
 1 cup Flour
 ½ cup butter, cold
 ¼ tsp salt
 2 tbsp water, cold
Almond Pastry
 1 cup water, cold
 ½ cup butter, cold
 1 tsp almond extract
 3 eggs
Frosting
 1 ½ cups icing sugar
 2 tbsp butter, room tempurature
 4 tsp water
 ½ tsp almond extract
 ½ cup toasted almonds, chopped or sliced

The Puff
1

In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour and salt; cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add 2 tablespoons cold water; stir with a fork until blended. Shape dough into a ball; divide in half. Place dough 3 in. apart on an ungreased baking sheet; pat each into a 12-in. x 3-in. rectangle. It will seem a bit crumbly.

In a large saucepan, bring remaining butter and water to a boil. Remove from the heat; stir in extract and remaining flour until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.

Spread over rectangles.
Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until topping is lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to wire racks.

The Frosting
2

For frosting, in a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, water and extract; beat until smooth.

Spread over pastries; sprinkle with almonds. Slice and serve 🙂
