Heat oven to 350°F. Cut ˝ cup butter into 1 cup flour until mixture resembles coarse corn meal. Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons cold water over the mixture and mix with a fork. Shape into 2 balls.

In a medium saucepan, heat ˝ cup butter and 1 cup of water to rolling boil. Remove from heat and quickly stir in almond extract and 1 cup flour.

Divide this mixture in half, spreading each half over the dough strips, covering the dough completely.

Bake in the center of the oven for about 60 minutes or until the topping is crisp and brown. Cool. Frost with Confectioners Sugar Glaze and sprinkle with toasted almonds.
