Reviews for Almond Bars
"I made these exactly as directed last week to take to work. They were great! Today, I made the same recipe but substituted lemon extract and added a 1/2 teaspoon of dried grated lemon peel instead of almond. These are great, too, but would add perhaps a full teaspoon of lemon peel or fresh lemon zest (even better) to give it a little more lemon flavor. I will keep this recipe handy! They are so easy to make!"
"I increase the recipe by another 4th and bake in a 10x15 pan. Then I cut the puffier edges off and slice the middle part into bars. The "scraps" are my at home treat! EVERYBODY loves these - crispy top, gooey inside, simple and delicious."
"I've made these many times. Very good!"
"When you need a quick & easy dessert - this is it! People love these these moist, flavorful bars, and it's almost embarassing to give out the recipe because it's so simple.Make these now!"
"It was ok..."
