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..."
"Followed the recipe exactly, but they came out very dry and cakey with a crusty top which crumbled when I cut through it. The taste was fine, just need WAY to be way more moist for my taste. I will not be using this recipe again."
"This is my husband's favorite treat, and it's so EASY!"
"This recipe is very simple and really good, especially if you like almond."
"Made it today for a group! Delicious and so easy!!! Received requests for the recipe!"
"These bars are very good and would make them again"
