This is a really nice bar - a little something out of the ordinary! Great flavour - the lemon also plays a starring role. I found them to be nice and moist although one of my guests commented that they were dry - I'm wondering if it was the powdery topping that made it seem dry. My only complaint is that the almonds did not stick at all. But, overall, quick & easy to prepare and delicious!

I made these for something different and really enjoyed them. The lemon comes through and brightens the flavour. I'm sure that they will be a hit on my Christmas platter. Thanks for posting this recipe.
