Almond Danish Bars

My good friend, Aleese, shared this recipe with me last year. This was my first time making it. So delicious!

Almond Danish Bars:
1st dough:
1 cup flour
1 stick butter
Cut together like a pie crust, add 2 tbsp of water. Mix with a fork. Form dough into 2 flattened strips about 3 inches wide and spread on cookie sheet.

2nd dough:
1 stick of butter
1tsp almond extract
1 cup water
1 cup flour
3 eggs

Bring water and butter to a boil. Add almond and all of flour. Remove from heat and stir to make a smooth, thick, ball. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Divide equally on 2 strips of dough already on the pan. Bake 45 mins. @ 350. Until puffy and brown. Remove from oven. The top will sink some as it cools. Frost when cool.

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 c soft butter
1 tsp almond extract
 2 tbsp milk
Green food coloring

Beat until smooth. Cut into slices.
