Almond Bars

Plate of bars fresh from the oven that I took over to Brittany, Deesh, and Bing’s

Tuesday, I was on my own for dinner so I thought it was the perfect time to make dessert for dinner! Almond Bars to be exact. I’ve told you before that I hate baking, and I usually have anxiety right before I stick something in the oven and then once more when I take it out. I saw this recipe and thought, wow it sounds so EASY and SIMPLE maybe I won’t screw this one up and I love the taste of almonds.

I followed the recipe exactly which I got from

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter (no substitutes), melted
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
confectioners’ sugar

Look it, a smiley face!

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until lemon-colored. Add the butter, flour and extract; mix well. spread into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar.

It came out how I hoped they would! It’s like a dense cake like snack with almond flavoring. I think my parents might actually enjoy these and will make them to bring next time I’m in Houston.
