Quick Pastry

Preheat oven to 350. Grease 1 large cookie sheet. Measure 1 c. flour into a bowl. Add ½ c. margarine and cut in with pastry blender. Sprinkle in 1 tbsp. of water gradually, mixing with fork till all flour is dampened. Using half the dough, make 2 strips on each side of cookie sheet. For the topping:

  • 1 c. H2O
  • 1 c. flour
  • ½ c. margarine
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. almond flavouring

Bring water and margarine to a boil over high heat. Remove from heat and add flour, salt and mix well. Cool slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well, add flavouring. Spread over first mixture. Bake approximately 35 mins. or until golden brown. Pastry will rise in baking and fold in cooling, leaving a custard like filling in the pastry. Drizzle with almond flavoured icing while warm. Serve fresh.
