Almond Filled Puff Pastry Braid - Just like the Bear Claw, just much, much easier! This Puff Pastry Recipe is filled with a thick layer of the almond filling, then topped with a tangy powdered sugar glaze.
Whisk 1 egg and 1 Tbsp water together. Brush the braid with the egg wash. Sprinkle with sugar and bake in a preheated to 400°F oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden in color and puffed up in the middle. If the pastry starts getting too dark before it's puffed up and golden everywhere, place a sheet of foil on top and continue baking until completely baked through.
To make the glaze combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar, a dash almond extract, and just half the milk. Whisk. Add more milk if too thick until the glaze is thick but pourable.
