Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 326 calories, 21 g fat (14 g saturated fat), 98 mg cholesterol, 160 mg sodium, 30 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Place flour in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. On an ungreased baking sheet, press dough into a 10-in. circle.
  2. For topping, in a large saucepan, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Remove from heat; stir in extract. Add flour all at once and beat until blended. Cook over medium heat until mixture pulls away from sides of pan and forms a ball, stirring vigorously. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny; spread over pastry.
  4. Bake 30-35 minutes or until lightly browned. Cover loosely with foil during the last 5 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For glaze, in a small bowl, beat confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and extract until smooth. Spread over top; sprinkle with coconut. Yield: 12 servings.

I omitted the coconut and put almonds on top instead! It was a huge hit!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 30, 2013

I found this to be lacking in any kind of flavor and, in fact, sprinkled on cinnamon to not only add flavor, but color as well. The cinnamon does help, but, honestly, this was too much work to justify no flavor, all the fat, and empty calories. Even hubby, who LOVES anything sweet and homemade, didn't care for this.
