Sweet tooths make a beeline for my dessert tray whenever these rich squares show up. They're attractive on the platter and delectable with fudge and coconut.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2011

"I bake cookies for a local senior center and like to try new recipes. I made these a few weeks ago and they are still raving about them. These are the most popular ones I've made so far. I did make a few changes. I upped the almond extract to 1 tsp and used sliced almonds instead of walnuts. I also sprinkled the chocolate chips and almonds on before baking. The almonds got nicely toasted. I know I will be making these often."
