Do you have something really
special that you really really want from
the jolly old man this year?
(I love to have a nice gift certificate
from 123 Stitch) just leave a plate
of these sweet little morsels out
for the big guy!
Glazed Almond Bars
.5 cup butter
.75 cup sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/4 tsp salt
1.75 cups flour
Mix, chill for 1 to 3 hours. Cut into strips. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sliced almonds, gently pressing into dough. Bake at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes, until lightly brown on bottom. Cool and drizzle glaze over bars. (I didn't let mine cool). Glaze .5 cup powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp almond extract, 2 to 3 tsp of milk, enough to make a nice drizzling consistency.
I'll let you know what happens!
