Absolutely the best dessert out there! Thank you Tia Mouse for such a fabulous dessert.

Thanks Tia for a great tasting treat to go with my coffee! This is more of a bar rather than a fluffy cake, but it is not too sweet and gooey and this is the way I like it. My husband had no trouble "forcing it down" either! The baking time was right on and the almonds and sugar make a perfect topping. This could be made with other extracts and other nuts as well. Thanks, Tia this is what my husband calls a "doer again". Carole in Orlando
