Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Beat 1/3 cup superfine sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs yolks and beat well; beat in almond extract. Stir ground almonds and flour into butter mixture until mixture has a thick paste-like consistency.
  3. Cut puff pastry into 8 equal pieces. Place 1 tablespoon almond mixture in the lower center of each piece. Fold top of puff pastry down over the filling and press edges together to seal. Make three 1/2-inch cuts equal lengths apart on the bottom edge to make the 'claw'. Transfer claws to a baking sheet.
  4. Whisk egg and water together in a bowl. Brush each bear claw with egg mixture and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons superfine sugar and sliced almonds.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!
