Almond Bars - Guest Post
Some friends of ours came up to camp with us over the weekend and Heather brought these delicious, mouth watering almond bars. They were just super yum and the almond flavor with the crunch was just on point. I asked her to do a guest post for us and, lucky us, she agreed. So here's Heather with the recipe for her Yummy Almond Bars!
If you like almonds, then you'll love this no-fail recipe. These bars were not only easy to make, but they have gotten rave reviews from my family and friends. Perfect for a fundraiser, elegant enough for a holiday party, etc. You can also try variations of extract & nuts such as banana extract and walnuts. Love these bar cookies for the ease of preparation and burst of flavor. This recipe will definitely be used again and again!
2 cups sugar
1 bottle almond extract
1 cup oil
2 cups flour
Mix first 5 ingredients with a mixer. Spread onto greased and floured medium sized cookie sheet(preferably one with 1 inch sides). Top with sliced almonds. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioner sugar. Cool and cut. Makes approximately 24.
That's all there is to it! So simple.
