CRUST:

  • Remove from the heat and beat in flour with a wooden spoon.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time, adding 1/2 tsp. of almond extract after each egg. Add 1 tsp. of almond extract after the third egg.
  • Beat until satiny and shiny smooth. Spread half of the mixture evenly over each strip of dough. Cover the entire surface of the dough.
  • Place in an oven preheated to 375°F for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before frosting.
FROSTING:
  • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and stir until smooth.
  • Spread the frosting over the cooled pastry strips.
  • Sprinkle sliced almonds on top of the frosting.
  • Cut each strip crosswise into to slices for serving.
