There's no brown sugar in this recipe, and I was sure I would miss it, but the flavor and texture were great. Slightly different than your average cookie or cookie bar. I doubled the recipe, and cooked it in my "all edges" pan for 30-35 minutes. When the tops were lightly golden, then cooled, they sliced neatly, and presented well.

Very tasty bars. A nice change from regular chocolate chip cookie bars. Loved the combination of chocolate and almond. Thanks for posting this Mom2Rose! Made for Bargain Basement Tag.
