Almond Puff Pastry

This is a fairly inexpensive recipe I love to bring to Pot Lucks. I always get compliments.

It makes 2 so it's nice because you can leave one home for the family if you don't expect a large crowd. Very easy to make but seems as if you spent a lot of time.




  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 2 cups of water + 2 Tbsp.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. almond or butter flavoring or extract


  • 2 cups confectionery sugar
  • 1 tsp. almond extract


Step 1: Mix to a fine meal; 1 cup flour, 1 stick margarine or butter, 2 Tbsp. water. Divide in half and place on cookie sheet and spread each out to 3x12 inches.

Step 2: Bring to a boil; 1 cup water, 1 stick butter or margarine, add 1 tsp. almond extract, remove from heat, add 1 cup flour (all at once), mix well. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, mix well. Spread over step one, bring over edges.

Bake 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Open oven during baking at your own risk, it may fall.

For Icing: Add desired amount of milk. Top with cherries, almonds or chopped walnuts. Ice while pastry is still warm.

Almond Puff Pastry

I have that recipe and I made it so often when my kids were young. My recipe calls for apples with the brown sugar. You should try it, makes it really good and a little more nutritious. (10/29/2008)
