- 2 sticks of butter
- 2 cups flour
- 3 tablespoons water
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure almond extract
- Betty Crocker Smooth & Creamy Vanilla frosting
- Chopped walnuts (or almonds)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add 1 stick of butter to 1 cup of flour & bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add 1 or one-and-a-half teaspoon almond extract. Quickly stir in 1 cup of flour & mix well until smooth & no lumps. One at a time (important) stir in 3 eggs.
Mix 1 cup flour, 3 TBSP water, and 1 stick butter until smooth. Roll into a ball and divide in half. Pat out each half into two strips (onto a cookie sheet). Spread above mixture on each layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour–no more, no less!
Let cool and then frost and add nuts.
