Almond Puff

Renee W.


These are melt in your mouth delicious, I just love them!

I generally make one without slivered almonds on the top, but they do add a nice crunch!

I will list almond extract and butter in the ingredients portion, but I have made it with margarine and imitation extract, and it turns out fine.

Also, the first few times I made this, I was convinced I wasn't going to be able to press the dough out into two 12X3 rectangles, but you can, you just gotta keep pressing!
