Danish Puff

This recipe is especially for those who love to bake. It looks like something you would buy at a pastry shop. My grandmother used to make this, and my Mom was inspired to give it a try herself. Everyone was glad she did – it tastes light and airy, with just a hint of sweet from the glaze.

1 c. flour
1/2 c. butter
2 T water

Heat oven to 350F. Measure flour into bowl; cut in butter. Sprinkle with water, and mix with a fork. Shape dough into a ball, and divide into 4 pieces. Pat each piece into a 6″x3″ strip, and place 3″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

1/2 c. butter
1 c. water
1 t almond extract
1 c. flour
3 eggs

Combine butter and water in a saucepan, and heat to boiling. Remove and stir in almond extract. Beat in flour quickly, stirring to avoid lumps. When smooth, add eggs, one at a time. Spread one fourth of the batter evenly over each dough strip. Bake for 60 minutes, and allow to cool.

1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 T butter
1 1/2 t vanilla
1-2 T water

Beat until smooth to make a simple powdered sugar glaze. Garnish with chopped walnuts if desired. Cut slices on an angle (not pictured.)
