Holiday Almond Bars
These are really rich because of the almond paste, so cut into small squares. They're so delicious--think almond croissant or pastry in a cookie form. Ingredients 1 cup butter, softened 1 cup almond paste 2-1/4 cups sugar, divided 2 eggs 1 teaspoon almond extract 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup slivered almonds Directions In a large bowl, cream the butter, almond paste and 2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and extract. Gradually add flour just until moistened. Spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining sugar; top with almonds. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into squares. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.
