Almond Glaze Recipe

Butter Braid® Pastries are about the easiest breakfast, brunch, side dish or dessert you can serve. Pull the pastry out of the freezer just before you head to bed and let it sit out to thaw and rise overnight. When you wake up, it’ll be ready for you to bake! After baking, you can top with the included white icing or try this Almond Glaze recipe. It might sound a little strange to use an almond extract, but trust me – it is absolutely amazing and gives the perfect finishing touch to the treat!
