Recipes, Etc.

While visiting a relative a few weeks ago, I had the greatest dessert which I am sharing with you today.   Takes a little while to make, but oh so good!

 

Almond Kringler

Pastry layer:
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
3 eggs
1 tsp almond flavoring

Icing:
2 ½ cups powdered sugar
3 T. softened butter
2 T. cream or half and half
1 +  tsp almond flavoring
Chopped almonds, for topping


Preheat crust oven to 450 degrees F.   


For crust layer:  In a mixing bowl, combine flour and softened butter with a fork or a pastry cutter-just like you’re making a pie crust. Add cold water and continue mixing until dough comes together.  Spread dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet in a 12 inch by 16 inch rectangle.


For pastry layer: In a medium saucepan, add water and butter and cook over medium heat until butter melts.   Add flour and stir.  Reduce heat to low and continue stirring until the dough forms a ball.  Add one egg at a time, beating well each time.  Add almond flavoring. 


Spread the pastry layer over the crust layer, using your hands or a spatula. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degree F and bake for an additional 15 - 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.   Remove from oven to cool.


For Frosting: Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth.  Add additional almond flavoring if you prefer a stronger flavor. Apply frosting to the cooled pastry crust and cut into small triangles. Top each piece with few chopped almonds.  


Etc.—This delicious Scandinavian dessert is somewhere between a bar, cookie, and a pastry with a sweet almond icing, which will be a hit for any of your parties, special events, or for that matter your family!
