Directions:
For dough: Mix butter and flour. Stir in water and mix well. Chill overnight. Beat almond paste with electric mixer until smooth (mine never beat up good until I started adding eggs) add sugar and eggs. Mix well - chill overnight. When ready to bake - divide dough and filling into 14 equal parts. Roll section of dough into a 14" x 4" wide strip (take piece of dough and roll it with your hands into a long tube and then flatten with rolling pin). Take a spoon of filling and spread it down the center of the dough strip. Lap one side of dough over filling then the other (use a little milk to make the dough seal good) pinch it shut at the seams and both ends. Place on greased cookie sheet with seam down. (Can shape like an S or any way you like.) Brush top with egg white and sprinkle sugar on top. Prick with fork every 2" for steam to escape.
Bake 375 for 25 minutes.
