Almond Puff Recipe

This old-fashioned Danish has a tender crust, a cream puff layer and an almond glaze. Serve it for breakfast or as a dessert.— Mary Ims, Yankton, South Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons warm water

Directions

  • 1. In a mixing bowl, cut butter into flour. Sprinkle with water; mix until smooth but not sticky. Shape dough into a ball. Pat into a 13-in. x 1-in. oval on an ungreased cookie sheet. Set aside.
  • 2. For topping, heat butter and water in a medium saucepan to a rolling boil. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in extract and flour. Return to low heat and stir vigorously until the mixture forms a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from the heat; beat in eggs, all at one time, until smooth. Spread over dough, covering completely. Bake at 325° for about 50-60 minutes or until puffed and lightly browned. Cool.
  • 3. Meanwhile, beat together all glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Spread over warm puff. Cut into 2-in. squares. Yield: 32 servings.

"I've baked this for years, ever since a dear friend brought it to a work function many years ago.

 
Simple and it doesn't look as yummy as it tastes.  DH loves it with a cup of coffee in the AM...I like it with my tea!
