Cut 1 stick butter into 1 cup flour, as for pastry. Add 2 tablespoons water; mix with fork until ball forms. Divide. On large ungreased jellyroll pan, pat each portion into a strip 3x12-inches, spacing strips about 3 inches apart.
In a saucepan, bring 1 cup water and other stick of butter to a boil. When butter is melted, stir in remaining flour all at once, and stir vigorously until mixture pulls away from sides of pan to gather into a smooth ball. Remove from heat. Add almond extract.
