    This is a recipe I got from a Dutch friend who made this once when we were having coffee. I begged for the recipe and she graciously shared it with me! It's so good! Enjoy!

      This was very good! Very close to a bar I had at a restaurant. The bottom layer was just a little underdone for my liking, so will bake longer next time. Used parchment and it came out like a dream. These cut up beautifully and taste wonderful. Thanks for posting a good one!

      This recipe was not so good as Recipe Junkie did not put down how many eggs went into the almond layer.
