How to Make It
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  3. To prepare the filling, combine 1 cup water and the butter in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat. Add the flour. Stir until smooth. Stir in the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the almond extract. Pour over the crust. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes.
