This is an old recipe that I can remember making when I was in my teens. I believe the original recipe came from my aunt. It has always been a favorite with everyone who has it.

How to Make DANISH PUFF

Step-by-Step

  1. Bottom layer:
    Cut butter into flour with pastry blender. Sprinkle water over mixture. mix round into a ball with fork.
  2. Divide in half. On an ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper pat each half into a strip 12x3 inches. Space 3 inches apart. Set aside.
  3. Top layer:
    Heat butter and water in a saucepan to a rolling boil. Remove from heat quickly and stir in flour. Stir over low heat until mixture forms into a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs one at a time with almond extract. Spread over strips.
  4. Bake 1 hour in a 350 degree oven. Cool.
  5. Glaze:
    Combine powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and 1 tablespoon water. Beat until smooth. Add second tablespoon of water if needed. Glaze should be thin enough to spread easily, not like frosting.
  6. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Walnuts, almonds or pecans. Walnuts or almonds taste best!
    Toasted almonds work too!
