I had bought some almond paste from an Amish distributor and found this recipe to try with it! These have a great texture and taste, but I was concerned with how much sugar was in them. I reduced the sugar that goes into the almond paste from 1 cup to 1/2 cup. I also added chocolate chips to the batter, and sprinkled slivered almonds on top. Finally, this recipe really needs salt. About 1/2 teaspoon added to the firstt batter component makes a major difference! Yummy.
Being of Dutch heritage, I love anything with almond paste. I just made these bars. I used a little less sugar in both parts, used lemon juice instead of almond flavoring, used 1/4 c. applesauce, and 1/4 c. oil. I added a 1/4 tsp of baking soda. 30 minutes is all you need in a 10x14 glass pan. They look yummy. This is not diet food, but a little of this is okay. Thanks for the recipe. Hucky
Except for cutting the sugar by 2/3 for both parts, I followed the recipe completely. THey turned out quite a bit fluffier than I had anticipated, almost with a cake-like airiness. The taste was good, but not quite what I had anticipated. I was thinking something way more dense, with the flavor packed in tight, as opposed to the dispersed flavor of airy cake.
Still tasty :)
These were awesome!! The only thing I did differently was to sprinkle some chopped almonds over the top before baking. I will definitely be making this again!
Fantastic, like almond brownies!
I used rice flour to make these gluten-free, very good,a little gooey, the egg made it so I didn't need to add any bonding agent. I think I may have used more than a cup of almond paste, I was going on the package which claimed 10 tablespoons, so I used a tube and a half, but that seemed like more than a cup ( I didn't actually measure it out) If it was extra, it only helped the fantastic Almond flavor!
I made these for a party. They were a hit. I did not want an overpowering almond taste, so used vanilla extract. I had to print the recipe for 6 different guests.
These are WONDERFUL!! If you love almonds, you will love this! It is much like an almond brownie. It has the consistancy of a brownie or baked fudge. These are wonderful. I made a confectioner's sugar, light cream, and almond extract glaze to make them look as delicious as they taste.
Very easy to make and it tastes great! The almond taste is not overpowering, very good.
If you like almond, these are great! I didn't have any almond flavoring so I skipped that and they still taste great. I can't wait to gt some flavoring and try it again. They are very moist and a bit chewy. I'll definitely do these again!
