1 cup flour
1 cup margarine, room temperature
2 tablespoons of water
Puff mixture:
1 cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup flour
3 eggs (room temperature)
1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup butter
3-4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

To make the dough, put 1 cup of flour in a bowl and cut in 1/2 cup margarine. Sprinkle mixture with 2 tablespoons water and mix with fork. Form mixture into a ball and chill in the refrigerator while preparing the puff mixture.

To make the puff mixture, bring 1 cup of water to boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla and 1 cup flour until blended. When smooth and thick, add in eggs, one at a time. Beat mixture after each until batter is smooth and glossy.

Now, divide the chilled pastry into 3 parts. Stretch and pat with lightly-floured hands onto ungreased cookie sheet until each measures 12" x 3" (it will be thin). Put the puff mixture on the pastry strips and spread to the edges. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool. Make frosting by mixing powdered sugar, butter, milk, and almond extract. Drizzle over cooled puffs and sprinkle with nuts. If you have any left over, you can freeze it.
