Swedish Coffee Cake
This Swedish coffee cake recipe has been passed down in my family for generations. My mother made it for us on our birthdays, and any special event. The crust is flaky and melts in your mouth. The pastry topping is much like a cream puff, and the almond flavor is subtle, yet distinct. You will love it!
Mix together & pat into two thin, oblong loaves on cookie sheet:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1 T. water
Melt together in pan:
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
Remove from heat & add to pan:
1 cup flour
Then, add 3 eggs – one at a time. Mix thoroughly before adding each egg.
Add almond flavoring (a capful)
Place this mixture on top of the oblong loaves.
It will be much like a cream puff pastry.
Bake for 1 hour in a 325 degree oven.
Cool and frost.
Powdered sugar, melted butter, milk and almond flavoring.

Easy Sweet Crescent Rolls
These rolls are so easy to make in the morning – you can even fit them in before the kids head off to school. And they are simply delicious!
2 pkgs. refrigerator crescent rolls (buy generic, so it's less expensive).
1. Take crescent rolls out of package, but do not unroll.
2. Holding roll like a log, cut each log into 6 equal pieces – 2 pkgs. will yield 12 rolls.
3. In a regular sized muffin tin, put a dollop (about 1 T.) of butter and a healthy pinch of brown sugar in each muffin cup – adjust more or less to your sweetness factor.
4. Place a cut crescent roll on top of butter and brown sugar.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Gauge your oven the first time you cook these to know how long they take.
6. Turn onto cutting board, and serve.
Incredibly easy & so delicious!
