2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups almond paste
2 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 pinch salt
1 egg white, beaten

In a large bowl, cut butter or margarine into flour until the mixture has a crumb-like texture. Make a well in the center, add the cold water. Mix together until the mixture forms a ball. Do not overmix. Chill dough.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, blend together almond paste, eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, almond extract and salt.

Divide dough in 4 parts and roll into 15 inch strips. Place filling along the center of each long strip of dough. Roll up and pinch the ends to seal.

Place strips 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Brush with egg white and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
