  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Cut 1/2 cup butter into 1 cup flour with a knife or pastry blender in a bowl until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 teaspoon butter extract. Add the water a tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until the flour mixture is moistened. Press mixture onto the bottom of a 10x13-inch baking sheet.
  3. Bring 1 cup water, 1/2 cup butter, and 1/2 teaspoon butter extract to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove from heat, then beat in 1 cup flour. Beat in eggs one at a time until blended. Stir in 1 teaspoon almond extract, and pour over crust.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 55 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, 1/4 teaspoon butter extract, and 1 tablespoon milk in a bowl until smooth. Spread mixture over the hot pastry.

Very good but doesn't keep well. Also, mine "climbed" up the side of the pan making really large crusts so I would try to not let the egg layer touch the sides, if possible, next time. The lar...
