Grandma Ruby's Danish Pastry
These are good.
Really, really, really good.
Cut 1/2 c butter w/1 c flour
add 1 tbsp water
Pat onto and ungreased cookie sheet into two 12 x 3" strips.
Let stand until next step is done.
In medium sauce pan, bring 1/2 c butter, 1 tsp almond extract, and 1 c flour to a boil. Beat until smooth - cool briefly - then add 3 eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Spread over crust.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
Frost with powdered sugar frosting using almond extract instead of vanilla. (I used sweetened condensed milk...natch.) Sprinkle with sliced almonds.
I cut mine and put them in cupcake liners to serve.
(I saved you some in the freezer, Dad.)
