Directions

  1. In a small bowl, cut butter into the flour until crumbly. Sprinkle with water; toss with a fork until moist enough to shape into a ball. Divide in half. On a floured surface, roll each portion into 12-in. x 3-in. rectangle. Place on greased baking sheets.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Add flour and salt all at once; stir until a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add extract; beat until smooth. Spread over dough.
  3. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until puffed and golden brown. Cool on pans for 10 minutes. Combine the sugar, butter, water and vanilla until smooth; spread over warm puffs. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 29, 2013

"I have made this so many times and it comes out perfect each time. Years ago I found a recipe making this exactly like this recipe only it called for a pineapple filling inside it. It was so delicious. I have since lost that recipe. Does anyone have that recipe. It was made exactly the same way only before spreading the topping on a pineapple filling went on first. Please help!"
