Almond Bars

Simple and delicious!  It does not get any better than that.  A coworker brought these bars in the other day and I was going to have just one little bite.  Well, once you taste these, you’ll see how that went.  One bite turned into 3 full servings.  These are oh so good.  Very easy and they make the house smell fantastic while cooking.  Enjoy!

Almond Bars:

1 cup butter, room temp

1 3/4 cups sugar

1 lb almond paste

Cream together with mixer.  Add:

2 eggs

1/2 t salt

3 cups flour

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease a 9×13 pan.  Cream butter, sugar and almond paste together.  Add eggs, salt and flour.  As I was putting this together, I thought for sure something was missing from the ingredient list.  These go together VERY thick, the batter is almost like cookie dough.  But continue on.  Press this into the 9×13 pan.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until slightly brown.  Cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Enjoy!
