Almond Bars Recipe

"This is one of my favorite recipes for last-minute school bake sales," writes Sandy Kerrison from her home in Lockport, New York. "The cake-like snacks are the first items to go...that is, if they're not grabbed by a teacher first. I also include them in Christmas cookie gift baskets."

"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."

"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."
