YUM! I was looking for a unique cookie to take to a cookie exchange and this was a great fit. I found the dough a bit sticky and difficult to shape but once I refrigerated them for a 1/2 hour and perfected my method it worked out great. Make sure you space them out a bit because they do expand. I also waited a few minutes before cutting as I found the cookies too hot right out of the oven. The glaze makes them look and taste even better but they are yummy without it too. Thank you Katra!

Me again. I just had to try this again, but I did two variations. I put chocolate chips on top of one batch. Didn't impress me, but some liked it. For the other, I used lemon extract with almonds on top. After baking, I added minced candied lemon (#116131)and lemon drizzle. Lighter tasting cookie for another set of taste buds.

Outstanding. Super easy, beautiful and beyond yummy. Can't wait to try with coffee! Very almond-y and very much like Dutch Almond Bars I tried in Orange City, IA (a Dutch town!). Thanks for posting, will be making this a regular. ;]

I like that they were chewy and no one flavor was overpowering the rest. Rocket K, Food.com's awesome designer, brought these for a cookie tasting at our office this past week. They looked and tasted wonderful!

These are great! The recipe isn't fussy and dough rolled out easily. Definitely plan to make them again.

They bring the memories of childhood back for me....My grandma used to put almond extract in all her baking and I find myself doing that now, the smell of almond extract just takes me back to her kitchen. These bars are so pretty and so tasty that everyone who has tried them ooh and ahh over them. They are a definate keeper on the Christmas baking list. Thanks a bunch.
