Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Use the 1st cup of flour and cut it into the 1/2 c. butter. Sprinkle water in and mix well. Form 2 balls. Pat each ball into a 12"x3" stripe on an ungreased baking sheet.

Mix the second amount of butter and water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add flavoring. Beat in flour-stirring quickly to prevent lumping. When smooth, add 1 egg at a time, beating well until smooth. Divide and put half on each pastry. Bake for 60 minutes.

Cream the frosting ingredients and use to frost the danishes. Sprinkle with slivered almonds.
