    LaJuneBug's Note:

    From Sunset "Cookies" (1985). I have made formatting modifications from the original recipe for clarity but all the steps and ingredients are the same as the cookbook. This is a bar version of the German Bienenstich cakes.

    • 1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine

    • 1 cup almonds, chopped (slivered will also work)

      Bake in a 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until topping is deep golden. Let cool in pan on a rack.
