These could be a little sweeter for our tastes, but had a wonderful bready texture and the almonds are delish! Wonderful. Made for ZWT4

I LOVE these! I already ate two big bars and it's taking strong will power to keep myself back from eating more! It made about 12 servings in a round pie dish- I didn't have a square one handy and it is really moist and difficult to cut small. They are not too sweet, but with wonderful flavor. Thank you!!! Made for ZWT 4.
