Each month we rotate houses and last month Jessica was the hostess. The hostess gets to choose what dessert we make and Jessica chose Almond Bars. We had been on a roll with mostly chocolately desserts so this was something new! They were easy to make and they smelled so good when they were baking.
And here is what it looks like after it has baked and cooled.
They taste amazing. I am not joking. They are moist, sweet and light. The flavor is perfect and I am totally craving one right now!
You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry to make them right now!
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter melted (no substitutions)
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
Almond slices and powder sugar to garnish
Beat eggs and sugar well. Add melted butter, flour, almond extract, and mix well until smooth.
Spread into well greased and floured 13"x9" pan and top with almond slices.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and let cool before serving.
Thanks for sharing your recipe Jessica!
I hope you try this recipe. It is easy to make, you can also halve the recipe and bake it in an 8"x8" pan.
Thanks for stopping by!
p.s. I really do read books.....when I have time! : )
