Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place 1 cup flour in medium bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup softened butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of coarse crumbs. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons water over mixture; toss with fork.
  • 2 Gather pastry into a ball; divide in half. Pat each half into 12x3-inch rectangle, about 3 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3 In 2-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup water to rolling boil; remove from heat. Quickly stir in almond extract and 1 cup flour. Stir vigorously over low heat about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Add eggs; beat until smooth. Spread half of the topping over each rectangle.
  • 4 Bake about 1 hour or until topping is crisp and brown; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • 5 In medium bowl, mix all glaze ingredients except nuts until smooth and spreadable. Spread over top of pastry; sprinkle with nuts.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Danish pastry originated when the Danes added sweet fillings to Austrian pastry. The result--a crispy, golden puff with a luscious, surprise filling--earned praise even from the Austrians!

Balance the sweet almond flavor by serving with a small bowl of lemon curd garnished with mint.
