I made an amazing bar recipe last night, Creamy Almond Bars. I LOVE almonds, they were super easy to make and they melt in your mouth = A KEEPER RECIPE 🙂
Creamy Almond Bars
1. Mix and press crust ingredients into a greased 9×13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese and sugar for the filling with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the rest of the filling ingredients and beat until just mixed. Pour filling mixture over crust and bake for another 15 minutes.
3. Combine all frosting ingredients with a mixer. Frost bars when they are cool and top with sliced almonds, if desired. Cut into 24 squares and serve immediately or serve chilled. Store in refrigerator.
Did you know… when using Amaretto in place of Almond extract you are supposed to use 4 to 8 times as much? That is what it says on Cooks Thesaurus website. My favorite website to go to when I need to substitute an ingredient.
