I made these last night for a college student who helped me with my computer. I lliked them because they didn't make a huge amount and they were quick to throw together. Next time I might add a little almond extract (I like the taste of almond) to heighten the almond flavor. Thanks for a good recipe!
Made these bar when Rebekah826 won an Amazing Race elimination guess. Really easy to whip up and pretty tasty too! I cut the squares a little smaller as I froze them for my 4th of July party. Thanks for the recipe Rebekah826.
