Almond Bars


You can't believe how good these are. Think of this bar as a plain blondie bar, just one million times better. They are chewy, buttery and full of almond flavor.

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, melted
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
confectioners' sugar (for dusting)
toffee bits (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until lemon-colored. Add the butter, flour and extract and mix well, adding optional toffee. Spread into a greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 325 for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

If you MUST you can add the toffee. My personal preference is plain.
