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.
