Really nice almond flavor. I doubled the bread and Amaretto and halved the butter (next time I will quarter it). I was worried the almonds wouldn't stick, but was pleased that it worked just fine. They were a great touch! I guess this depends on how large your pieces are, but for us this served 8. This is really yummy!
